Laurent Duvernay-Tardif continues to serve as international hero

Kansas City Chiefs starting right guard and soon-to-be doctor Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is continuing his trend of being an international hero this offseason.

As can be seen via his official Instagram account, the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens hosted Duvernay-Tardif this past Saturday, when they took on the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Duvernay-Tardif captioned his Instagram photo in French, and teammate Travis Kelce commented: “I’m jealous and I can’t even tell you what you just said...”

We all are, Travis. Duvernay-Tardif spent time in the Canadiens’ locker room and on the bench, and he was even interviewed on the Bell Centre’s video board.

In addition to completing his medical degree this coming May, Duvernay-Tarif plans to travel to South Korea to serve as a part-time journalist and collaborator for Radio-Canada at the upcoming Pyeongchang Olympics, according to the National Post.

“It was my goal to go to [an Olympics]. It was on my bucket list,” he explained, via the National Post. “I pushed the idea and it was a good match. They liked the idea. I can combine talk about science and sports simultaneously.”
