Connor Carrick on using social media to be a positive influence in the world: “I don’t want to just sit there on my phone all day, scrolling until my thumbs hurt.

You just don’t know the exponential growth on the other side of what you ignite. All the people you can touch it’s an amazing thing to think about. I found that really exciting.” [NHLPA]
