The Everyday Millionaire‘s latest guest needs little introduction for Canadians. Few players in Toronto Maple Leafs history captured a place in the hearts of hockey fans like number 27… the one and only Darryl Sittler.
Darryl finished his career in 1985 with 484 goals and 1,121 points. He also set a National Hockey League (NHL) single-game record that still stands today, getting 10 points (six goals, four assists) in a game against the Boston Bruins in 1976. In 1989, Darryl was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, securing his place among the NHL’s all-time greats.
In his post-hockey career, Darryl keeps his entrepreneurial spirit lit with business endeavours fueled by his long-standing philosophy to learn, prepare and work hard. He is an active board member of several publicly listed mineral exploration companies and a founding Co-Chair for Have a Heart for Downs Syndrome (HHDS). He is also very supportive of several charities including Special Olympics Canada, Screen Colons Canada and Colorectal Cancer Canada. Additionally, Darryl spends time working with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment in the areas of Corporate Partners and Community Relations.
On the latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire, Darryl discusses his background and experiences to provide insight into where his entrepreneurial mindset and strong work ethic originated. He talks about the importance of long-term thinking and setting goals, as well as his personal approach to leadership. Darryl also shares his view of the hockey world now, and his guiding words of wisdom for hockey parents and grandparents.
