On "Outside The Lines," Jeremy Schaap brings the fascinating, emotional story of Evan Kaufmann. He's a former University of Minnesota hockey star. He's also a Jewish-American, and many of his relatives were killed in the Holocaust. So when a professional hockey team in Dusseldorf, Germany -- not far from where his German grandfather lived before arriving in the U.S. -- called to offer him a position, he was forced to make a difficult decision. And it's one he's glad he made.
