from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,
“I’m 10 pounds under what I played at. I lift (weights) a couple times a week, skate every once in awhile.
“I’m healthier now, at 44, than when I was drafted at 18.’’
In its recent 100 People of Power and Influence issue, The Hockey News ranked the 10-season Calgary Flames left-winger 54th, ahead of such luminaries as uber-agent Don Meehan, Flames co-owner Murray Edwards and the CBC’s longest-playing stuck record, Don Cherry.
Amid a litany of presidents and general managers and commissioners and titans in power suits, he alone made the cut under the job description: Hockey Trainer.
“How about that?’’ Roberts laughs delightedly. “Where’d THAT come from, I wonder?
Not bad for a guy who couldn’t do 11/2 chin-ups at his first pro camp.’’
