“Hockey was such a part of my life, as well as my family’s, that I knew we were all going to miss it. For the first few weeks my son was in tears sobbing, ‘I miss you being a Red Wing daddy.’ I didn’t know what to say so we just cried together. Nobody prepares you for that kind of stuff.”
-Kris Draper on retirement. Robert Laura at Forbes did a story on star athletes retiring and Al Iafrate was also quoted.
“It’s hard to replace the passion you have for a sport. There aren’t many jobs that you retire from where you get to prove that you are the very best of the best in front of thousands and thousands of people every night.”
