Chess and hockey may not seem like a natural fit, unless you’re the U.S. number one. Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura, a longtime fan of the NHL, will finally get his chance to play chess at a hockey game. This Sunday, March 16, he will host a chess exhibition before the Florida Panthers home game in Sunrise, Florida.
