Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane celebrated St. Patrick's Day by pretending to be a maintenance man.

On his visit to Sportsnet studios in Toronto, Kane donned a worker's costume and hard hat and pretended to fix the studio during "Hockey Central at Noon" on Friday.

Kane carried a drill and a ladder, which he began to climb before joining hosts Daren Millard, Jeff Marek and Gord Stellick at the desk. He did the interview while wearing an orange vest, which said "Fire Warden" for some reason.

In December, a piece of the studio's ceiling collapsed and nearly hit host Doug McLean. The studio has been fixed, but Kane apparently was checking on those repairs.

Kane said he's an avid listener of the show, and has been known to call in as "Patrick in Illinois."

He and the Chicago Blackhawks play at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; CBC, CITY, CSN-CH, NHL.TV).
