Bryan Trottier teaches aboriginal kids about leadership
Bryan Trottier's name has appeared on the Stanley Cup seven times, but his fans might be surprised to learn that a player so accomplished needed reassurance growing up.
"I look at my own cousins and my own brothers and sisters and my own family … we downplayed ourselves to such a degree we were kind of all our worst enemy at times," he told CBC News.
Born in a small town in Saskatchewan, with a Métis heritage, the hockey legend now teaches about leadership to aboriginal children.
"It's confidence more than anything else," he said. "Leadership comes from your insides, where they are screaming at you. You are doing all the things you think are the right things, are the necessary things that are going to help the team win."
Watch as Trottier revisits his career and discusses his legacy.
