Hockey is back in a big way, so a big voice stepped up to sing "O Canada."
Four-time Grammy Award winner Michael Bublé put on a stirring performance of the Canadian national anthem before the Chicago Blackhawks took on the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Saturday.
Bublé was not in the bubble, however. He couldn't sing in person due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, which stopped the NHL season back on March 12, so he did the next best thing. He took center ice at Rogers Arena in his hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Players gathered in a circle for a pre-recorded instrumental version of the "Star-Spangled Banner" and Bublé's rendition of "O Canada." The video performance was also used before the start of the Pittsburgh Penguins-Montreal Canadiens game.
