Bryan Bickell, of Chicago Blackhawks, joins Mike Iaconelli on Ike Live! Monday, June 29 at 8 pm ET

Pittsgrove, NJ, June 25, 2015 – Bryan Bickell knows a thing or two about competition, pressure and the Stanley Cup, but what does he know about fishing? Mike Iaconelli finds out in his interview with Bryan on the next edition of Ike Live!, Monday, June 29 at 8:00 pm ET, live-streaming from

Fresh off his third Stanley Cup win in six years, Bryan talks about his wins, what it takes to survive at that level of competition, and whether he will take the Cup fishing, as he did last year. Deemed an awesome angler by Mike, Bryan fishes the Otonabee River near his home in Ontario during his off-season.

Mike and his crew match their harrowing near-death stories against those of the fans during the show’s “pop-up” contest. The lucky viewer who calls, tweets or posts to Facebook the best (e.g., worst) near-death experience wins an Abu Garcia tournament jerseys autographed by Mike.

Other contests and giveaways are planned for less-death-defying fans that call or tweet, and a high school friend of the crew who goes by Predator Hunter online also visits.

He began fishing in tournaments after high school, joined the pro-am circuit in 1992 and turned pro in 2000. In 2003, he won the Bassmaster Classic.
