Jerry Bruckheimer Interview - 2009 NHL Awards

Last week we met with hockey aficionado and king of the big and small screen Jerry Bruckheimer at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas to discuss franchise ownership, Hollywood shinny, and CSI: NHL. These are his stories.

Q: What draws you to the game of hockey?
A: You know, I played it as a kid for about a year and went to a lot of games with my dad. It’s just something when you’re in Detroit, you know, it's Hockeytown so you get involved.

Q: Are you interested in owning a NHL franchise?
A: You know, I love the sport. If something happens, you know, I’d love to get involved but you never know.

Q: Are you evaluating the Phoenix Coyotes situation?
A: You know, we look at it but it’s up to the Judge.

Q: Are you working on any hockey related projects?
A: We’re working on a few things that will make it to the big screen or small screen.

Q: I was just talking with Michael BublĂ© and he’s looking for a hockey game in LA. Have you got room for another skater in your weekly pickup?
A: He’s not good enough unfortunately.

Many thanks to Jerry for speaking with us.
