Theo Fleury to reveal singing chops on ice dancing show, “Battle of the Blades”

TORONTO – Add country singer-songwriter to the resume of former hockey hero Theo Fleury.

The former Calgary Flame star has written and recorded a song that will be featured in the next episode of CBC-TV’s “Battle of the Blades.”

Fleury is one of five former hockey players competing on the reality series, which pairs ex-NHLers with former figure skating champs in weekly dance routines.

Producers say Fleury and figure skater Shae-Lynn Bourne each recorded country songs they’ll be skating to Sunday. They say Fleury wrote and recorded a song called “As the Story Goes,” while Bourne is singing “All Over Again” with Irish singer Don Mescall.
