What an inspiration he was to me. He hoped to be on the ice at 100. It would have been such an honor for me to skate with him, I think it’s the reason I’m grateful to older players who gave me a chance and showed me things.

Rest in peace to the oldest hockey player according to The Guinness Book of World Records”
