Yesterday it was reported that Canada's newest Supreme Court Justice Marc Nadon may have fibbed to a Parliamentary committee when he said he had been drafted at the age of 14 by the Detroit Red Wings (prior to abandoning his hockey dreams to pursue his legal dreams.)
Today His Honour backtracked on that claim, saying he had not in fact been drafted in the way most of us understand the term, but had been recruited in a more general sense.
Via The Huffington Post:
"I wasn't trying to say that I was going to play for the Red Wings that year or something to that effect," the Federal Court of Appeal Justice told The Huffington Post Canada.
Nadon said his father had told him that he would be part of the Red Wings organization, and if in a few years he became a Wayne Gretzky-type, they would have a grab on him."But I never became a Wayne Gretzky so it never went any further," he said.
