EPISODE 30

LISTEN HERE and available wherever podcasts are available.

Episode 41 of the View From the Penalty Box is up. I was particularly touched by the Zamboni driver, David Ayres, playing in an NHL game so I discuss this moment and if anything like that ever happened when I played.

Other topics include:

  • A Winnipeg Jets player (WHA) who was walking to the arena, gets robbed, stripped down to his underwear and has to try to convince security that he’s actually a hockey player.
  • A listener asks if Cam has any stories about Mark Wells and the 1980s Olympic gold medal team. Cam talks about how the team winning gold was bad for his career and explains why. Talks about Mark Pavlich and the Smurfs line.
  • Cam talks about Edmonton Oilers player Tyler Benson and what the Oilers coach did for Tyler that made Cam proud.
  • Another listener asks who besides Cam is the only other player to play with both Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe.
  • Did they really throw a moose leg on the ice when the Flin Flon Bombers won a game?
