COLUMN: NEW MCDAVID VIDEO A LESSON FOR ALL

.

 

When two Canadian legends — NHL star Bobby Orr and broadcaster Peter Mansbridge — had a chat about hockey, one quote made a profound impact.

“I think it’s 0.0001 per cent of kids play one game in the NHL,” Orr said that sunny day steps away from a calm lake bordering Parry Sound, Ont., his hometown.

Orr’s comment sheds endless light on the powerful Connor McDavid documentary, Whatever It Takes. The show, which premiered Friday night on Sportsnet, brilliantly chronicles an incredible display of the human spirit. And, yes: hockey does play a pivotal plot in the film, detailing McDavid’s rehabilitation process following the collision of his left knee into a goalpost in Calgary, April 6, 2019 during the Edmonton Oilers’ final game of the season.

But there are so many life lessons in it.
