We’ve discussed in detail on this website about how Kansas City Chiefs starting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif lives a good life out of football.
Whether it be completing his medical degree, trying his hand at journalism at the Winter Olympics or simply popping onto NFL Network’s Good Morning Football, the now-sixth-year Chief often finds himself in the spotlight more so than the shadows, which might be otherwise typical for an offensive lineman.
This past weekend was no different, as Duvernay-Tardif had the opportunity to meet Montreal Canadiens center Max Domi. Duvernay-Tardif was born in Montreal and grew up a Canadiens fan, and the two swapped their football and hockey jerseys, respectively.
Duvnernay-Tarif told Domi “it’s really an honor,” to which Domi replied, “the honor’s all mine, man.”
A cool moment for two of the best in the world at their craft.
LDT status update
The Chiefs activated Duvernay-Tardif from injured reserve (fibula) back on January 15 ahead of the AFC championship against the New England Patriots, but the Chiefs chose to start and play Andrew Wylie, instead. The expectation is that Duvernay-Tardif should be ready for offseason workouts, which begin on April 15.
Over five seasons with the Chiefs, Duvernay-Tardif has played in 46 games, starting 43 of them.
