Watch Mike Cammalleri the next time he scores a goal.
It won’t be a one-man celebration. He’ll skate straight to his teammates first or wait for them to join him so they can celebrate as a team. It’s what he learned from his parents growing up in Richmond Hill, playing hockey for the AAA Toronto Red Wings and going to The Country Day School in King City.
“That was our philosophy,” says Craig Clarke, Cammalleri’s coach for five years from minor atom on in the Red Wings organization. “We had a reputation of being an ultimate team. And Mike focused on what had to be done, not on what had just been done.”
Cammalleri talked about there being a “Toronto” way to play hockey when his Montreal Canadiens, with fellow GTA natives P.K. Subban (Rexdale), Glen Metropolit (Regent Park) and Dominic Moore (Thornhill) all contributing significantly to the Habs’ playoff victory over Pittsburgh.
