Chef Chuck Hughes talks hockey, food on NHL Live

Celebrity chef and Montreal Canadiens fan Chuck Hughes joined NHL Live in studio to discuss his passion for hockey and his new book, "Chuck's Day Off."

"Growing up in Montreal you don't have a choice," Hughes said on becoming a hockey fan. "Obviously the Canadiens being one of the most iconic teams out there, growing up in the city it's infectious. You can't not love the Canadiens. When the season is over everybody is sad. The whole summer we speculate, we talk about it and wait for the season to start.

"It stems from also playing as a kid. I'm a big hockey fan and I love the Canadiens, but I think even more so I'm in love with this sport. I still play four-five times a week; whenever I can I get on the ice. When I watch I can respect and realize how hard the game actually is. I try to tell people if you're not a hockey fan it's because you haven't seen a game live. Once you've seen a game live you can't not love it."

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
