Ever gotten a tweet from Bobby Orr, commending you for your hockey play? Cale Makar has.

The iconic Orr, still considered the greatest defenseman of all time in NHL history, tweeted that at the Colorado Avalanche D-man just now.
I’m old, so kids today just kind of look at me blankly when I say the name Bobby Orr, but trust me kids, he was a revolutionary player in the game of hockey. He had 139 points one year as a defenseman.
Makar has drawn comparisons to Orr, most recently from the Great One, Wayne Gretzky.
This is just another feather in the cap of Makar, who only won a Norris Trophy, a Conn Smythe Trophy and the Stanley Cup in the last week.
And how was your week?
