Chillin' with... David Clarkson

Friday, 11.07.2008 / 10:00 PM / Chillin'

By Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer


What's on your iPod now? "Nickelback, Bon Jovi, Meatloaf. I have that kind of music, that kind of stuff. I have pretty much everything. I actually have Rod Stewart. Hey, I was brought up on him. I have every kind of music there is."


What are your favorite web-sites? "I don't use my computer a lot. I really don't know. I usually just use my computer just to talk to people back home."


Who would play you in a movie about your life? "That's a tough one. To be honest, I can't even give you an answer. I'll need to do a lot of thinking on that one. Honestly, I don't know."


Do you eat in, order in or go out? "I'll usually go out to eat. I like Italian. I'll get penne with chicken, or a chicken parm."


Favorite TV show? "Growing up, Hockey Night in Canada was all we watched."


Favorite movie? "Braveheart. My dad was born in Scotland, so..."


What Hollywood starlette would you go out with? "Ha, ha, ha. Ohhh. This is something I'd have to really think about. Right now, I really don't know. You name them, I'm sure that will be one of them. Maybe Jessica Simpson."


Favorite sports team of all time (excluding your team)? "I grew up in Toronto, so I was a big Leafs fan. My dad had season tickets, so I went to all the games. I was born and raised a Leafs fan."


Favorite sports figure of all time (excluding yourself)? "Somebody I always looked up to as a kid would have to be Wendel Clark. I still try to play the way he did: Get in your face, hit hard, go to the net. I think if I met him now I'd be nervous because that's how much I respected him and liked him growing up."



Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
