Retired hockey player Bobby Orr who played for the Boston Bruins appears in a new television advertisement for Mastercard. Orr is 60 years old and he explained that he took a lot of pain and punishment in his hockey career. The television ad shows Orr’s scars and injuries from his hockey days.

In the ad n animated scar that goes around one of Orr’s knees and that looks like a time line showing Orr’s best years and accomplishments during his hockey career. The ad will be on air later this month in the Canadian cities of Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Vancouver.

Orr’s knees took heavy damage in which he had surgery on his knees more than 12 times in his career. Orr’s hockey career lasted from 1966 to the 1970s. Orr is said to be one of the all-time greats for his time in hockey and Orr says he had to battle to stay in the game. His number 2 hockey jersey will be retired on November 27, 2008 at the General Motors Centre when he played in his junior days with the Oshawa Generals. His number 4 jersey with the Bruins had been retired earlier.
