Prior to the 2011 Scotiabank Pro-Am Tournaments in Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto, I was asked to interview several NHLA members for articles that were included in the event programs. One of the players I had the pleasure to speak with was Marty McSorley.
Upon arriving in Toronto for the Pro-Am Tournament, one of the first NHLA members I was introduced to was Marty and I was greeted with a warm smile and a friendly handshake. I was struck by his passion and respect for the game, as well as his desire to help the numerous charities that the NHL Alumni Association supports. When chatting about his young family, Marty's smile grew wider and you could easily see the joy and pride in his eyes. Our conversation put me at ease, helping me feel like one of the guys. It confirmed what I already knew - the NHLA truly is Hockey's Greatest Family! When it came time to write the next instalment of Ask the Alumni, I knew who I wanted to contact.
