This is an easy one for me. I'm the youngest of three children and I have two older brothers. I take great pride in being the one that turned my brothers and dad into hockey fans. I was glued to Hockey Night in Canada every weekend, and because Ron and Don's voices echoed throughout the household, the rest of my family finally got drawn into watching the action with me.

It was the thrill of a lifetime when I was asked to take part in the broadcast, although in a small way, for Doug Gilmour Night at the Air Canada Centre in 2009. I was the Game Night Host for the Toronto Maple Leafs at the time, and that night I got the honour of introducing Don Cherry to the home crowd, who then went on to introduce Gilmour. It lasted only a few minutes, but it was magical. The energy in the building was electric and it's a feeling I'll never forget.

Whether your Hockey Night in Canada memory happened on your couch as you watched an unforgettable goal happen, or on a rink as you thought back to that unbelievable breakaway you watched over the weekend, we want to hear about it. All season long we invite you to post your memories on our Facebook page. Every weekend, Andi Petrillo will share one of the memories during the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast.

As we get set for our second weekend of the season, join the conversation with us on Twitter @hockeynight with the hashtag #hockeynight or chat along live in the Hockey Night in Canada Live Chat.
