These Men Really Care

Last night I had the pleasure of meeting Hall of Famer Jim Gregory at the Closing Banquet of the Jim Gregory Friendship Tournament in Toronto.

Gregory has been recovering from a serious heart attack and thrilled the crowd by making a special effort to join the exceptional hockey players who had been competing in the tournament.

Gregory, for all his accomplishment in the world of hockey, came across as a caring, humble individual and I'm grateful I had the opportunity to exchange stories with him.

The Special Hockey International tournament was a resounding success and we thank the Grandravine Tornadoes for hosting such a great event. Next year (2010) the SHI tournament will take place in Orangeville, ON.

Thanks to Jim Gregory (pictured on right) for lending his name to our tournament and also to Dick Duff another Hall of Famer (on left) for attending the opening ceremonies.
