As The Shortest Skater In NHL History, Nathan Gerbe Credits His Dad's Methods For Getting Him There

On this week's Spittin' Chiclets, longtime NHL forward Nathan Gerbe joined us to talk about his path to the NHL (among many other topics). As the shortest skater in league history, he had to work harder to get there and stay there. He explained how his father pushed him to help him achieve his goal.

Despite what some online thought, Gerbe appreciated his experience and everything his parents gave him.

He also had nothing but high praise for his former head coach John Tortorella.

The boys also discussed the many goings-on since they last recorded in Vegas: coach firings, suspensions, Olympics, trades, and more. This was a fun one with a great interview. Take a listen.
