Pierre 'the monster' McGuire

Kudos to Pierre McGuire.

At the NHL draft in Ottawa he demonstrated why he is one of the best ambassadors for the game of hockey.

Immediately following numerous picks in the first round, die-hard fans such as myself screamed at him for his opinion, not knowing that he was on air.

However, he gave us an enthusiastic thumbs up, or shouted his opinion to us with a smile on his face.

On Day 2 of the draft he was not working, but was walking around the TSN draft studio. I leaned over the rail and asked him a simple question concerning Erik Karlsson, the Sens’ first round pick.

Expecting a quick answer, Pierre instead engaged in a brief conversation with me and provided me with analysis and a load of information.

There's a reason why so many people love Pierre - his good nature, passion, knowledge and joy of hockey rubs off on all and he is eager to share that with anyone who loves the game.

Thank you, Pierre. You are a monster!
