Hockey players are a different breed of people. At the pro level you might drop the gloves with another player in a game in June and then play in his foursome at a charity golf tournament a month later. That’s just the forgiving nature of the people who play the game. When it comes down to it, hockey players are always there for other hockey players.
Plymouth Community Intermediate School eighth-grader Cam McLachlan and professional hockey Hall of Famer Cam Neely are a case in point.
McLachlan, 13, could have come out of the womb with a hockey stick and skates on, ready for his first shift. He comes from a hockey family right down to the fact that he was named for Mr. Neely, the former Boston Bruins superstar who now serves as president of the hockey team.
