In the special segment of the interview titled, Please Explain’, Kane was shown some of his pictures from the past. The star hockey player then had to explain the story behind the picture to the viewers. There were many pictures, including his meeting with former hockey player Joe Sakic. But the one that stood out was when the star just entered professional hockey. 

The picture depicted Kane wearing a tight jersey of team Canada and standing along with his fellow mate wearing an America jersey. His young face with white-coloured spectacles was giving him a hilarious look. The champion player informed me that he participated in some events as the Olympics were approaching. “I think we were doing the USA versus Canada.
