The Vancouver Canucks weren't the only Canadian hockey players making headlines this week. Gilbert Brule of the Edmonton Oilers and his girlfriend were driving back home in Vancouver after walking their dog and saw two hitchhikers on the side of the road standing in the pouring rain. Brule’s girlfriend initially had no intention of pulling over to pick them up but as they drove by and the hitchhikers waved, Brule realized that one of them was U2's Bono, who waved. Brule immediately told his skeptical girlfriend to turn around and pick up the Irish rock star. As a thank you for the rescue, Bono invited Brule and his family to come to U2's concert in Edmonton the next day. Brule sold his Stanley Cup Finals Game 1 tickets and booked flights for his family to the concert, where Bono personally signed backstage passes for the entire family. Bono started up the concert by giving a shout out to all Canadian hockey players and naming each member of U2 after an Oiler player with Bono of course taking Gilbert Brule. Watch a video of Bono telling the whole story on stage below.
