Bublé’s Unexpected Journey at the NHL Draft
Canadian singer Michael Bublé, known for his love of hockey, was recently chosen as a celebrity captain for the NHL All-Star Game draft. Alongside him were other notable figures, including the creator of Drew House clothing brand, Will Arnett, and talented performer Tate McRae. Bublé shared the role of co-captain with Quinn and Jack Hughes, representing the Canucks.
A Surprising Admission from Bublé
During a media interview following the draft, Bublé revealed an unexpected twist to his experience. While boasting about his fantasy hockey skills, he confessed to having taken a “microdose of mushroom” given by a friend, only to discover later that his friend had lied to him. Bublé humorously admitted, “So, I’ll be honest, I thought I was in ‘Blades of Glory’ for most of the time that I was out there until it sort of settled down.” He referred to the 2007 sports comedy film featuring Arnett alongside Will Ferrell, Jon Heder, and Amy Poehler. Eventually, Bublé realized he was actually at the NHL All-Star Game.
Bublé’s Draft Choices
Despite his altered state of mind, Bublé managed to make some strategic selections during the draft. With his first pick, he chose Nikita Kucherov, the current points leader in the NHL. Additionally, Bublé and Quinn leveraged their Vancouver bias, selecting four Canucks players. Jack Hughes also secured his fellow Devils teammate, Jesper Bratt.
The NHL All-Star Game’s skills competition is scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. ET. The game itself will take place on Saturday at 3 p.m. ET.
