Bill Daly's Day

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

It is around 9:15 am as Bill Daly approaches his seat before a news conference is set to begin, and he greets the NHLPA’s Steve Webb and Columbus Blue Jackets star defensemen Seth Jones with an important piece of information.

“You should have been here for breakfast, the bacon was off the charts,” chuckles the NHL’s deputy commissioner.

Don’t let the warm smile and relaxed demeanour fool you, though, it's already been an active day for the busiest man in hockey.
Just like every day is.

“It’s endless,” Al Young, Daly’s security detail, said Wednesday. “His days flow into the next.”

Most days begin with a 5:15 a.m. workout in his suburban New Jersey home before a 6:30 a.m. departure for Manhattan.
