If you want to see Don Cherry upset, just insult Canadian kids who play hockey.
The Canadian hockey icon dropped the gloves to defend Canada’s minor hockey players and coaches Monday — just a day after Team Canada’s coach Brent Sutter suggested hockey development in the country isn’t what it used to be.
Cherry said he still can’t believe a Canadian coach would say something like that, let alone one with a last name Sutter.
“He threw the people in Canadian minor hockey under the bus,” a spirited Cherry said Monday. “I cannot believe Brent Sutter said it — but he did.”
Sutter’s closing words about Canada’s disappointing fourth-place tournament finish in Sweden to the Toronto Sun’s Terry Koshan riled up the star of Coach’s Corner.
