Good call...It was after Eddie Shore fractured his skull with a hit from behind

Alright, I read a great piece of trivia. Try to figure this out without the help of google.

I was drafted by the LA Kings 2 rounds ahead of Brett Hull and 5 rounds ahead of Luc Robitaille(both HOFer's) in 1984. I was also drafted into a different sport that same year. I decided to persue this other sport and went on to win various awards and championships and retired as one of the best at my position in the history of my sport.


Who am I???

Had zero clue, was gonna check google to see who it was (wasn't gonna give it away though, just curious) but now that i see Glavine's name, it rings a bell. I'm assuming it's correct? If it is, that's pretty freakin' amazing! Wonder what he'd have done on the ice?

Is this a trick question? Is it a hockey player and by hit's you mean bodychecks? Winter classic? Not sure he even played, but i'll guess Milan Lucic though i think he may have been injured?

If it's actually a baseball question, then i'm obviously way off!

In which case, i'll say Dustin Pedroia, another guess!!!

The answer to my questions is Tom Glavine.

I would be shocked to think that someone knew that without google.

It's amazing the trivia we pick up throughout life, I actually did know that one, just didn't see the question soon enough.

I've got one of the top of my head that's even more obscure;

This player is the son of a famous WWE personality and was drafted in the secound round, 24th overall, in his draft year. He didn't make it to the NHL, but his Dad did make the WWE Hall of Fame.

Okay, first hint, he played on a United States Olympic team.

Also my bad, off the top of my head was off just a wee bit, I went and checked my memory and I had the draft position wrong, substantially, he was an 8th rounder 168 overall and played 4 games in the NHL....hope that makes it easier

Gene Okerland was his Dad obviously, but I have no idea what the kids name is??

I think George sounds about right.

Was it George Okerland??

Todd Okerlund, drafted by the Islanders in 1982, I believe.

One of those trivial bits of fluff, I remember watching one of the wrestling programs back then, must have been draft time in 82' because they actually congratulated Mean Gene on the broadcast for his son getting drafted, and for some reason it stuck in my head. Go figure, if my wife asks me to stop and get 3 things from the grocery store, I'll always forget something, yet I remember this stuff.....

I actually remember Mean Gene, an announcer, right? Didn't follow wrestling for long but did watch it for a few years in my early teens.

Like Beans, had never heard of the son and certainly had no idea he'd been drafted!

Nicely done!

Also a canadian amateur boxing champ, lacrosse star..etc.
He boxed an exhibition match with against Jack Dempsey, who when the match happened, was the current Heavyweight Champion.
He was called the Canadian 'Jim Thorpe', very interesting fella.
