Hockey players show up at the rink and think the lights come on as if on their own, and you play. But behind all the magic of our game, especially at the NHL level, is a huge machine made of multiple moving parts, a master illusionist that pulls off complicated and interconnected feats to make players and fans unaware of anything beyond excitement and fun. One of these moving parts in maximizing this fan experience for the “World class ‘plus’” Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning organization—and a proud and passionate one—is Nova Scotia native and now Vice President of Premium Seating and Group Sales, Matt Hill. The boys sit down with Hiller for a wide-ranging and thoroughly enjoyable chat, as he shares his story of how his will to work in the NHL got him there and has him now living his dream of still “going to the rink every day.” Once smooth-skating (although Steve Yzerman might say he ought to bend his knees more) and now smooth-speaking, Hiller makes ticket sales and other behind-the-scenes business sound more fascinating than the game itself. Listener beware: You may leave this interview a Tampa fan.Watch on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_sCm_fkb7I
