A legend here in Alberta. A few stats: The only voice the Flames have known. 3100 games...NEVER MISSED A SINGLE ONE. Not one. Sipped from Lord Stanley back in '89. Member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
...met Corlee Torok in 2007. hahahahaha
They were planning a farewell game for him but he was having none of it, saying "that would put the focus on me. The game isn't about me". He said he didn't want a send-off while he was still broadcasting. They're planning a tribute for him next season.
Seriously I cannot say enough good things about this guy. I only met him the once but he was so ridiculously nice, it's one of those moments I'll never forget. Definitely one of the greatest play by play broadcasters ever. --Corlee
