Welcome to "Mocking The NHL Draft Part Two," the second installment of our two part series in which we mock the NHL Entry Draft.

In South Quebec born and raised on the playground that's where he spent most of his days. Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and all shootin' some H Pucks outside of the school. When a couple of guys who were up to no good, started making trouble in my neighborhood. He got in one little fight and his mom got scared she said You're movin' with your billet family in St. John. He whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said SCIVEY and had a moose on the hood! If anything he he could say that this cab was rare but he thought Nah, forget it Yo home to Bel John!" He. Pulled. Up to the house about 7 or 8 and he yelled to the cabbie yo home smell ya later!

Jake knows how to get into the dirty areas in order to be effective and that's exactly what he did while starring as Mike Rowe in the hit TV sitcom Dirty Jobs. We caught with Jake at the Emmy's to discuss how he gets into character. "I imagine Mike Rowe as being a real blue collar guy is relatable to everyone with a pick up truck and a jean jacket. That's my motivation. If a person with a pick up truck and a jean jacket can relate to my character being waist deep is pig mucus then I've done my job."
