Bobby Orr

Bobby Orr, often referred to as the greatest ever to play the game of hockey, discusses his career on the ice, from 1966 through the mid-1970s, and his life afterward. No defenseman had ever played like he did, received so many trophies, or set so many records, several of which still stand today. His memoir  Orr: My Story is about where he came from, what drove him, and what he thinks of the game of hockey today.
