Jamal Mayers saved a kid's life on his draft night

Jamal Mayers saved a kid's life on his draft night

Jamal Mayers may have had the most eventful draft night in any sport. Ever. 

The former Blackhawks winger told a story on In the Loop Friday evening that puts all other draft stories to shame. 

He didn't have to wait several picks like Aaron Rodgers or get his inappropriate tweets discovered like 50 percent of athletes today. No, Mayers actually saved a kid's life back on his big night in 1993. 

A 7-year-old was choking on pizza right in front of him, causing Mayers to jump into action. 

Mayers performed the Heimlich Maneuver - which he learned because his brother was training to be an ambulance driver - to save the child. 

That's some heroic stuff. 

Listen to the full story in the video above.
