Mark Messier, retired Canadian professional ice hockey centre of the National Hockey League and current special assistant to the president and general manager of the New York Rangers.

It was February 2006 when I finally got it! I was driving westward along Boulevard Champlain towards the arena in Ste. Foy. Beside me in the passanger seat was none other than the NHL's second all-time scorer and six-time Stanley Cup champion, Mark Messier.
