Guest Paul Henderson

Ask anyone who was around in the 1970's and they'll tell you it was a memorable time in Canada.

The Montreal Olympics, the opening of the CN Tower, the debut of 'King of Kensington'... and the goal.

September 28th, 1972, thirty-four seconds left, Paul Henderson scored the winner, as Canada beat the Soviets in the Summit Series. Hands down, the most famous goal in hockey history... One that made Henderson a national hero.

But what a lot of people don't remember is - Paul almost didn't make the team, but a strong training camp solidified his spot. He had a good thirteen year career in the NHL, but not extraordinary. So, there's been a lot of debate over whether Paul should be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Shortly after his playing days, he started 'The Leadership Group', a ministry that offers counselling and motivational talks. And this past February, Paul went public with his battle against Leukemia.
