McCreery calls the opportunity incredible and says singing there will be like putting his two greatest loves together. He says hes looking forward to seeing which teams will be playing; the division championship series are just under way.
The budding country star releases his debut album, Clear as Day, on Tuesday.
Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?
Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.
"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."
But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.
"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."
Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."
