There’s lots of ways to listen to the View from the Penalty Box podcast and now we’ve added Spotify.
We always appreciate it when someone takes the time to review our podcast – View from the Penalty Box (Classic Hockey Stories). This one definitely made our day.
I talk about my time playing with Mr Hockey, Gordie Howe on Episode 12 of my podcast View from the Penalty Box
Because of such high fan interest, I’m reposting this from my twitter account (@CamConnorNHL):
I have to share a story about Edmonton Oilers Paul Coffey and what a great man he is (because he is too humble to ever share this himself). At the Humboldt Broncos jersey event I attended a few nights ago, there was an auction to raise money for scholarships named in honour of the Humboldt players.
One of the most prized items up for auction was a guitar (pictured below, not my photo) that had the faces of all the Humboldt players that had passed from the bus tragedy. Understandably, two of the families of the players went into a bit of a bidding war for the guitar.
Eventually one family had the highest bid (around $6,000 I believe) and won the guitar. Later that evening, they also auctioned off the guitar that Tom Cochrane sang Big League with (pictured below).
Immediately, Paul Coffey bid $10,000 (knowing he probably wouldn’t be outbid) and won the guitar. He gave it right to the family who was outbid to ensure they also had a momento to take home with them. True class.
I speak about Paul’s act of kindness on Episode 26 on my podcast.

Here’s a great review of our podcast – View from the Penalty Box. And good news, we’re recording our next episode this weekend.
Was just sent this by a fan and it made my day. Not many, if any, videos exist of me giving interviews and here’s a big one where I discuss my double overtime goal with Canadiens de Montréal. I sure do miss those days.
