In our show's many conversations with NHL Network host Jackie Redmond, we have discussed Vancouver Canucks' head coach Bruce Boudreau's love for all things wrestling.
With Jackie's double duty as host for WWE shows Talking Smack and Raw Talk, she undoubtedly has some connections in the WWE world.
So, with NHL Draft coverage on the NHL Network as a backdrop, and guest analyst Boudreau at the table, who shows up but Boudreau's favorite wrestler, Kevin Owens!
Boudreau's natural reaction to being surprised by Owens is that of a 10-year-old boy who has the chance to meet his hero!
Then on Sunday, Owens retweeted an NHL parody site's announcement that the San Jose Sharks drafted Owens with the 171st pick, to which Owens replied that he would play for no one else but Boudreau!
Pretty cool stuff!
