Hrudey Shining

from the Edmonton Journal,
The mask is off, the microphone is on and the audience is listening. And on our TV sets is Kelly Hrudey, the self-described introvert, looking cool as a cucumber on Hockey Night in Canada. "I love public speaking and that shouldn't be," admits Hrudey, the former goalie and lifelong introvert. So how can a bashful guy be so unaffected, so incredibly calm, on national TV? Don Cherry, we get. Cherry likely emerged from the womb with his thumbs up. But Hrudey was the kind of kid who hid at the back of the class. In groups, he took on a role adopted by introverts everywhere, as the good listener.
