Adam Burish, Brian Campbell to join NBC Sports Chicago's Blackhawks coverage team

NBC Sports Chicago's Blackhawks coverage just got a bit more star-studded.

Two members of the 2010 Stanley Cup championship squad, Brian Campbell and Adam Burish, will be joining NBC Sports Chicago this season as Pregame and Postgame Live analysts.

Campbell and Burish join Pat Boyle and Jamal Mayers on Blackhawks Pregame and Postgame Live, which will air before and after every Blackhawks game, even games that aren't televised right here on NBC Sports Chicago.

Boyle will be the show's primary host, with Mayers, Campbell and Burish rotating as studio analysts.

Campbell spent four seasons with the Blackhawks, from 2008 to 2011 and then last season, his second stint with the team. Burish spent the first four seasons of his NHL career in Chicago, playing for the Blackhawks from 2006 to 2010.

Mayers spent two seasons with the Blackhawks, the second as part of the group that won the 2013 Stanley Cup.

Also joining NBC Sports Chicago's Blackhawks coverage this season is new reporter Michelle McMahon. Formerly of NHL Network, McMahon will provide viewers with pregame and postgame reports and locker room interviews.

NBC Sports Chicago is set to air 50 Blackhawks games this season. Every game televised by NBC Sports Chicago will also be available to live stream right here on NBCSportsChicago.com and via the NBC Sports app.

Jamal Mayers saved a kid's life on his draft night

Jamal Mayers saved a kid's life on his draft night

Jamal Mayers may have had the most eventful draft night in any sport. Ever. 

The former Blackhawks winger told a story on In the Loop Friday evening that puts all other draft stories to shame. 

He didn't have to wait several picks like Aaron Rodgers or get his inappropriate tweets discovered like 50 percent of athletes today. No, Mayers actually saved a kid's life back on his big night in 1993. 

A 7-year-old was choking on pizza right in front of him, causing Mayers to jump into action. 

Mayers performed the Heimlich Maneuver - which he learned because his brother was training to be an ambulance driver - to save the child. 

That's some heroic stuff.
