From his childhood in the hard-scrabble Ontario north, to the rinks of St. Michael’s College School in Toronto, to the NHL and entrepreneurial success, Tim Horton worked hard – and played hard – his entire life. The tough defenseman with the bullet-hard slapshot helped the Leafs to win four Stanley Cups. Before his tragic and untimely death in a car accident at the age of 44, he also established a chain of donut shops that has become an enduring Canadian icon. Tim Horton’s story of hard work and perseverance will inspire young hockey players and donut fans alike.
