VIDEO: Don Cherry's high praise for Boone Jenner

by Rob Mixer / Columbus Blue Jackets

Should it surprise you that Don Cherry considers Boone Jenner to be his type of player? Not really.

The former NHL coach and current Hockey Night in Canada personality has had plenty of good things to say about Jenner dating back to his junior hockey days, but this past weekend, Cherry made sure to mention the Blue Jackets' leading scorer on "Coach's Corner."

Host Ron MacLean teed him up and Cherry closed out the segment with his assessment of Jenner's game. In the video above, this begins around the 6:00 mark with Cherry breaking down the timeliness of his goals, his resiliency after a back injury last season, and then MacLean chimes in with a compliment of his own.

Watch the video to hear Cherry and MacLean's comments in full.
