Immediately after his packed, televised press conference at General Motors Place, Linden handed over to the Canucks’ charity the $25,000 he received last month from the National Hockey League as part of a humanitarian award.
It won’t be Linden’s last act of community service even if he never skates another shift in the NHL.
“No, I don’t think that will stop,” Linden’s wife, Cristina, said.
“During my time at Nike ... I got to spend time with Michael Jordan, Lance Armstrong and Tiger Woods,” Canuck president Chris Zimmerman said. “They are extraordinary people. But I have never met another athlete with a bigger heart than Trevor Linden.”
*Video of Linden’s retirement speech was posted here yesterday
