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.

 

 

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, her team is always the Toronto Maple Leafs. Instead of falling for movie stars, Rochelle fell for hockey players. As she grew up, her passion grew to include wanting to be the first female NHL player, the first female 'water' girl for her team and catching a true NHL puck. She did try for the puck, only to learn that A) the puck could have killed her, if she tried to get it or B) you needed to buy one. Years later Rochelle still loves the game! Now a days instead of wanting to join the players, (don't let her fool you, she still wants to join the team) she writes about them. Her one wish in the world is to be alive when the Toronto Maple Leafs win their next Stanley Cup! Rochelle has a certificate in Marketing/Communications at the British Columbia School of Technology and a writing certificate from Simon Fraser University. She has started her own writing company, "From Rochelle's Pen".
