Bobby Orr Doesn’t Like Being Called ‘Puck Hog,’ Says Passion Was Key to His Game

Borry Orr is known for many things in the hockey world, but the descriptor he likes the least is that of a “puck hog.”

The famous Bruins defenseman was asked about that title in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, and he explained that it wasn’t something he liked very much.

Orr, who just released a new self-entitled book Orr, sat down with CBS correspondent Mo Rocca to discuss the new book, his favorite memories from his long career and the passion that played such a big role in it.
