Motorvationally Speaking: "Danny Grant"

Danny left home at an early age to find work a thousand miles away in Peterborough, Ontario.

Back in the early sixties, that was part of the price that needed to be paid to make it all the way to the National Hockey League.

After a stint in the minors with Houston, Danny finally cracked the parent Montreal Canadiens roster, helping the Habs win the Stanley Cup in 1968. The following year, he was dealt to the expansion Minnesota North Stars for his first full NHL season, where Danny set rookie scoring records and captured the Calder Trophy as the league's top newcomer.

Before he was through, the Fredericton native suited up for 14 NHL campaigns which included a 50-goal season with Detroit. A durable, hard-working winger, he once managed to run up a string of 566 straight games played.

Today on TSB, we learn how lessons from the NHL translate to the business world with New Brunswick Sports Hall of Famer ... Danny Grant!
