When does an NHL player really know he’s arrived as a star in Toronto? Having his own waitress at Real Sports? Getting name-checked in a Drake lyric? No, there’s really only one endorsement that elevates great players to Ontarian deity status: Getting a kiss from Don Cherry.
Good to see Don wore his lovely lilac jacket for the occasion. Must have been like getting kissed by a handkerchief filled with blueberry yogurt.
Like we said: Rarefied status for Kadri. Because he was given the Gilmour:
Granted, Doug Gilmour got the lips while Nazem Kadri got the cheek.
Gives you something to strive for, kid.
