Podcast Episode 17: Cam Connor talks Concussions

You asked and we listened, a new line of View from the Penalty Box merchandise is now available here: www.viewfromthepenaltybox.com/merch

In today’s episode, Kris talks about knocking out his front tooth over the weekend and compares it to how, in all Cam’s years of fighting, he never lost a tooth. What was his secret? And why isn’t his nose all banged up either?

Kris brings up an interesting fact that Cam played pro hockey without wearing socks in his skates – he skated barefoot. Who recommended this tactic and who recommended he run around in his hockey skates in his backyard during the summer?

Cam shares a hilarious story about Frank Beator who was wanted by the police who showed up between periods to come get Frank, but Frank outsmarted them. You’ll never guess where he hid.

A listener question about who Cam thinks is the toughest player currently playing in the NHL.

Cam then goes into the background of concussions in the 1970s/80s and how the term concussion was never ever discussed and goes into details about the ‘tough it out’ culture when he played.

To end the episode, Cam opens up about his struggles with concussion symptoms to this day.
