Episode 067: Willie O’Ree (Part III) - The Journeyman, and The Message

In the final episode of our Willie O'Ree series, our hero breaks back into the NHL in 1960. There he has some of his best, and worst, experiences in the league.

When his time in the big leagues comes to an end, he finds himself on the west coast of the United States in a place he wasn't even sure had ice.

That move would prove one that stuck for life, however, as he fell in love, married, and left behinid a legacy that is now properly preserved for all time.

Episode 066: Willie O’Ree (Part II) - The Debut, and The Waiting Game

In Part II of Willie O'Ree's story, we pick up right where we left off: the hospital. Willie has just received the news that he is blind in his right eye after taking a puck to the face. The doctor imforms Willie that he will never again play the game he loves. After returning home, and resting for two months, Willie decides he is going to prove the doctor wrong.

In this episode we follow Willie out of the Junior hockey ranks to Quebec as he plays for the Aces, and then to the big leagues as he plays for the Bruins. We take a trip back in time to Brooklyn to meet one of Willie's heroes, and then to...a baseball field in Atlanta, Georgia?
