CHICAGO, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Hockey Hall of Famer Bobby Hull took to the stage at a Chicago theater's production of "A Christmas Carol" alongside an 11-year-old boy diagnosed with lymphoma.

Hull, 71, appeared in a one-night-only, walk-on role Tuesday at the Goodman Theatre as part of the performance organization's first partnership with the Chicago Blackhawks, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday.

"Entertaining 22,000 people a night -- that's show business," Hull said. "We'll see how this works when I'm nearly 72 years old."

The hockey star's appearance in the show coincided with the stage debut of Charles Finch, 11, a lymphoma patient whose appearance in "A Christmas Carol" was arranged by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
