David Letterman will host his last Late Show episode on Wednesday.

Letterman was known for bringing on famous athletes as special guests, especially hockey players.

After winning his second Stanley Cup, Letterman brought on Blackhawks right winger Patrick Kane.

Kane won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, as well, and Letterman hoisted both trophies on the set. Kane and Letterman shared a great moment.

Letterman asked Kane what he would do with the cup while it was in his possession, and Kane said he was going to take it to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

I had it for a day in Chicago and took it to the Jimmy Buffett concert.

Letterman replied:

It was nice you could get a date.

Letterman was known for his terrific interviewing skills, and he always brought the best out of his guests. He and his Late Show will be missed.
