It might still be the offseason, but NHL training camps are coming, and coming fast! Players are taking the last few weeks of their offseason and enjoying the quieter things in life, like when Canadiens player Paul Byron was enjoying a fishing trip with his family, but this peaceful fishing trip turned into a heroic moment for this Habs player.

Byron was fishing with his brother in law, his father in law and a family friend when they watched a plane crash happen right infront of them on the water.
Neal Leblond, Byrons brother-in-law stated:
The seaplane would have plunged violently towards the lake at the time of the crash. The craft then fell overturned in shallow water.

Another man by the name of Serge Labelle who was riding his seadoo on the lake was the first to the scene to help the pilot, then Bryon and Leblond would arrive to assist.
Paul jumped into the water before me. There was metal everywhere, gas, the engine was hot. Paul took charge of the man. We risked our lives going into the water.

Paul would state to RDS that he didn't consider himself a hero, he was just doing the right thing.
The pilot is still alive but in the hospital in serious condition. If these brave men did not arrive when they did, this event could have been much more tragic.
You are a hero guys.
