In part one of my interview with Ryan Smyth he discussed retirement, his jersey retirement by the Moose Jaw Warriors happening tonight, being drafted and he talked about Ron Low benching him in the second game of the 1997 playoffs.
In part two we discuss many things, but he really caught me off guard with a story about what happened the night Chris Pronger's shot hit him in the face.

I had the pleasure of spending an hour with Ryan Smyth earlier this week discussing his career. He joined me in the TSN 1260 studio for his first lengthy interview since retiring last April.
Today, in part one he discusses retirement, how his childhood dream came true, being drafted by the Oilers and how Ron Low shaped his career.

The Edmonton Oilers have three selections that will land inside the Top 35 overall in the 2015 draft: Their own first and second selections and the Pittsburgh Penguins' first rounder. It's not certain if the team will add picks during the time leading up to the trade deadline but the more interesting question is this: Does Craig MacTavish make a deal on the draft floor that includes one or more of those precious 2015 picks?
