CHICAGO (WLS) -- Bryan Bickell won two Stanley Cups with the Chicago Blackhawks and is back in Chicago, but not seeking a hat trick.

Bickell was a famed hockey player who was forced to retired from the sport after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Now, the former left winger is working to help people living with MS.

Bickell, his wife Amanda, and their dogs Dixie and Daisy joined ABC7 Chicago in the studio to discuss their foundation "Bick's Pits" and how they use pups to help their cause.
