This week it was such a pleasure to welcome Grant Fuhr to the show. He was the backbone of the Oilers in the 80's, was a star for Canada and rightfully was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. However, Grant journey wasn't without adversity. From injuries to own goals to being railroaded by the NHL without a positive drug test. Through it all Fuhr has kept an incredibly positive attitude and is always the most gracious person in the room. It was great to spend time with him on the podcast where we went back to the beginning to when he started out having to wear wrong handed equipment to wearing the old face masks and the 1987 Canada Cup.
