Chicago Blackhawks general manager Kyle Davidson has a big night in Nashville on Wednesday even though everyone knows exactly what he’s going to do with the first overall pick he received via the NHL Draft lottery.
The Connor Bedard era is about to begin when the Blackhawks get into gear to start the 2023 NHL Draft, which begins Wednesday night. Fans have already been seen all over Music City wearing custom Bedard jerseys in preparation for the election to become official.
But Davidson decided to have a little fun with a local Nashville hockey channel, Penalty Box Radio, when he was asked to do an interview about the NHL before the draft.

Here’s the rub: The interviewer had no idea he was talking to the Blackhawks’ general manager. He thought he was just a random hockey fan.
«Kyle from Chicago,» Davidson said when asked to introduce himself.
The end of the interview was for the best, though, as Davidson was asked if he believed the league rigged the draft in the Blackhawks’ favor. It’s been a conspiracy theory ever since the lottery results came out.

«No,» Davidson said as he looked at the camera.
The interviewer then urged him on, saying, «You seem pretty confident.»
«I’m very confident,» he replied with a smile.
The entire interview was also fun, as Davidson was asked to rate on a scale of 1-10 how knowledgeable he was about hockey.
«Probably like, I didn’t play professionally or anything, so probably as a 4. sports fan. Some people say I don’t know much,» he joked.
Davidson was also asked if there were any changes he would like to make to the league.
«I think it’s pretty incredible,» he said. «I don’t really have one specific change. I love the game, I love where it is, I love the players that are in the game. It’s all good for me.»

Penalty Box Radio later found out that Davidson was the man on the microphone, but the lack of knowledge there led to some great content.
