Part 2 of Brian Burke's interview with TVO.
It's a collective message from prominent NHL players: "If you can play, you can play." Homophobia has no place in Canada's game.
The You Can Play project was created to honour the memory of Brendan Burke. His father, Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke, sits down with Piya Chattopadhyay to tell us how professional sports can move beyond the concept of a "gay athlete," to simply an "athlete."
Brian Burke's youngest son, Brendan Burke, has passed away due to injuries suffered from a car crash in Indiana earlier today. From everyone here at MLHS, our thoughts and prayers are with Burke's family. This truly puts hockey into perspective in accordance to life.
