Blackhawks general manager joined Pregame Live prior to tonight's Stadium Series matchup.
He spoke on a number of topics, including what makes outdoor hockey games so special, noting that he had a rink in his backyard growing up in Buffalo.
"I guess it's something about being outside and being in the elements like this in a day in the snow, and you don't have a care in the world when you're a kid," he said. "It's just fun to be outside and be back to your roots. You play pick-up hockey and you make it fun."
