Former NHL D/RW Daryl Stanley On His Journey To The League, Playing In Philadelphia, The Famous Pregame Brawl In Montreal & More

The final podcast of 2020 is a wonderful in-depth conversation with former NHL defenseman/winger of Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks, Daryl Stanley. He joins me to discuss growing up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, playing in the Western Hockey League as a teenager, his journey to Philadelphia as an undrafted player, a near fatal car accident that put his career in jeopardy, getting to and playing in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1987 and the famous pre-game brawl in the Conference Finals of that year against the Montreal Canadiens. We also touch on his influences, favorite player growing up, toughest player he ever fought and much more. It was an insightful and engaging discussion from one of the more rugged players of his era. I couldn’t think of a better way to close out this year than to have a special guest like Daryl connecting with me to share his hockey life.
