As part of the "Hockey Weekend in America" celebrations the Chicago Blackhawks will be hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight for an outdoor game at Soldier Field (if the weather cooperates). 'Make-A-Wish' was also in the house on Friday night.
4-year-old Nicholas Skretkowski's favorite player is Jonathan Toews (and why wouldn't it be?). The Blackhawks and 'Make-A-Wish' got together to make this little guy's dreams come true...a private skating session with Toews on the ice at Soldier Field.
My favorite TV show is hockey, too.
I gotta say...this kid is pretty damn good for 4-years-old. Pretty decent skater, but the most impressive part is his shooting. On skates, clean contact every time, shooting towards his target. Nice job, Nicholas.
Rozsival is out there with them just to make sure the kid doesn't take his roster spot.
