While he plies his trade on a field, he didn’t look out of place on the ice. Despite being able to stand on skates, Bighill made sure to keep his noggin protected, wearing his helmet at all times. That drew some chirps from the 10-year-olds whom he was skating with.

After participating in some shootout drills and being challenged to a fight by one of the kids, Bighill and the kids lined up for a photo with the Grey Cup.
