Kevin Smith, the bad boy of movies, may be best known for his movie character Silent Bob, but when it comes to the topic of violence in hockey, he’s got a lot to say.
And during a recent conversation to promote his upcoming Feb. 2 Toronto appearance at the Scotiabank Theatre in Kevin Smith: Live from Behind, he didn’t hesitate to make his feelings known.
“I like fighting as much as the next guy, but Jesus Christ, how many people have to die? Look, man, when one of the greatest hockey players living isn’t playing because he’s concussed, then something’s seriously f—ked.”
“I mean, like, Sidney’s off the ice, man,” he says, reminding us of the fact that Crosby hasn’t played since December, after his supposed recovery from a concussion proved shortlived.
Smith’s passion for hockey has been well documented over the years and his adoration for Canadian idols like Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr exceeds anything he feels for anyone in the world of entertainment.
