Manny Malhotra's parents

Postby Humperdink on Sun Mar 15, 2015 9:15 pm

Some would say impressive.

Per wiki:

"Malhotra was born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario. His father, Shadi was born in Lahore, British India, (present-day Pakistan) and worked as a research chemist for Xerox. He holds over 110 patents and is now retired. His mother, Lise, is a French-Canadian and was a stay-at-home mom. His parents both hold doctorate degrees from the Université Laval in Quebec City – his father's in polymer chemistry and his mother's in biochemistry – and prioritized education for Malhotra. Due to his mother's French background, he spoke both French and English at home."

So... you get a doctorate in biochemistry and then stay at home to raise the kid?

Did his parents devise some scientific way for him to win pretty much every faceoff ever?

Very cool info about his parents. Also, I believe Manny is the first or second NHL player ever with Indian heritage.

I went to a game in Columbus several years ago with a coworker who is 2nd generation Indian - it was his first NHL game. Sometime in the first period he said "hey, there's a player with an Indian last name out there". So I googled him for that info.

The cool thing is that we sat a few rows behind the goalie in a shootout game that went several rounds - ended of course, by Malhotra.

It's more common than you may think when both parents have PhDs in the sciences. We call it the "two body problem". With a PhD in the sciences it's almost assured you're going to get a job somewhere, but for two people to get a job in the same location... that's where it gets tough. My wife and I will likely run into this problem in a year or two.
