About the Artist

Hosted by Jim Axelrod CBS News Senior National Correspondent

Don’t miss the chance to meet former NHL All-Star, Stanley Cup winner and Olympic Gold Medalist, Theo Fleury, and hear his amazing story. Fleury is perhaps best known for his time on the ice. But off the rink, his life once carried the markings of a troubled childhood, abuse and coping with emotional pain through addictive and self-destructive behaviors. Today, Fleury defines himself as a victor over trauma and addiction, and a facilitator to those still trying to find their way. His best-selling books, Playing with Fire and Conversations with a Rattlesnake, encourage open sharing and provide practical tools that people seeking help can personally use. These tools are also useful to those who want to lead a productive conversation, called “Real Conversations,”  with anybody else experiencing trauma. Theo will tell his story followed by a Q&A and will meet and greet fans after the show. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards Sam Buck and Vanishing White Matter Disease (www.vwmff.org). For more information about sponsoring this event,  please email Robert DiTullio, Jr. rditulliojr@nullcultec.com.

Tom Laidlaw is a motivational speaker, business entrepreneur, former sports agent, and former NHL defenseman. A true leader on the ice, Tom served as either Captain or Alternative Captain for both the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings. He played 11 seasons (705 games) in the NHL; 7 with the New York Rangers and 4 with the Los Angeles Kings. Tom now dedicates his life to motivating others to live life to the absolute max.  He grew up on a humble Canadian farm, where he learned how to truly embrace hard work and appreciation for life. Whether it be your relationships, personal goals, business endeavors, mental strength, or physical health, Tom’s mission is to inspire you to live his mantra of a True Grit Life.

Colton Orr played 11 seasons (496 Games) in the NHL with the Boston Bruins, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. His physical style of play quickly made him a favorite of fans and teammates alike. Since retiring from the NHL in 2016, Colton has made it his mission to ensure that players of all skill levels are properly taught to use their body in all hockey situations. This mission is carried out through the Colton Orr Hockey Academy, where Orr himself provides on-ice and in classroom training to athletes, focused on practicing safe and effective skills in the physicality of hockey.

Jim Axelrod is an award-winning senior national correspondent for CBS News, reporting for “CBS This Morning,” the “CBS Evening News,” “CBS Sunday Morning,”  and other CBS News broadcasts.
