Cam Connor discusses why he ended his hockey career and the injuries surrounding that decision, which included a broken back.
Questions and topics include:
-Why did it take two years for Cam's broken back to be diagnosed by team doctors?
-What happens when a player retires?
-What, if any, player reached out to him once he left the game.
-The transition from professional hockey to the 'real world' and the lack of services and support for players making that transition back then.
-Why can't some players make the transition away from hockey?
-What was it like that last time he met Gordie Howe (when Howe was 82 years old)?
-Cam discusses Kris Russell accidentally scoring in his own team's net and if that ever happened before to a teammate on his team?
-A quick check-in to see how Cam's prediction that the Las Vegas Golden Knights will make the playoffs is faring.
-Another missed opportunity, Cam talks about the time he was asked (in 1981) to invest in this new product called...rollerblades/inline skates and he turned it down.
-Some stories of his public speaking events, including when he got locked inside a maximum security prison for hours to speak with 12 men convicted of murder!
