Player Agent Don Baizley In The Fight Of His Life

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,

Don Baizley has asked me many times over the years not to write about him. That’s just the kind of guy he is.

One of the most well-regarded agents in the hockey business, representing some of the NHL’s biggest global stars, Baizley has remained the quintessential Winnipegger, preferring to do his work quietly.

This time, however, I’m not listening.

Because this time, it is about him.

Baizley is in trouble. Diagnosed with non-smoker’s lung cancer, which had already spread to his back, he’s in the fight of his life.

The number and scope of people pulling for him tells you all you need to know about the influence the man has had on the game and the respect he’s earned in it.

Godspeed, Mr. Baizley.

“non-smoker’s lung cancer”

Odd phrase to put in an article like this. I’m not a smoker, but it’s almost like the author’s trying to tell the reader “hey he’s not a smoker, so don’t blame him for being sick, which would totally be okay to do if he was one.”  Use the word “hereditary” and this impression would disappear entirely.

Anyways, best of luck to Mr Baizley.
