A fantastic hockey player, 8x winner of the Norris Trophy and a 2x winner of the Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins is back! He is back not as a player, but this time as a writer. Do you know who he is so far?? Need more clues?
Born in Parry Sound Ontario, Canada, he learned to skate like most kids, on a frozen outdoor patch of ice. He played defense and is considered one of the best players of all time. He had to end his career partly due to knee problems. Know who he is now? He considers Gordie Howe a great player. He thinks that Don Cherry should be put into the Hockey Hall of Fame for his coaching and his ‘Coach’s Corner’ lectures.
His wife’s name is Peggy and this player is around 65-years-old today. Do you recall his name yet? I guess I can give you some more clues if you need them still! In the book he never held back his criticism of Alan Eagleson. A man, agent and head of the hockey player’s association who took money from the player’s pension fund.
After his time on the ice, he became an agent for different hockey players in 1996. His company represents some of the greatest skaters today. This includes: Eric Staal, Marc Staal, Taylor Hall and Ryan Ellis to name a few.
In his 300 page book, he writes about his life experiences and yes, he also gives out some hockey advice.
His name is Bobby Orr, his book is called: “Orr” My Story, and it’s a must read for any fan of the game.
