It took 22 years, but on Thursday Begin finally got that missing piece in his life when he received his high school diploma. Former Montreal Canadiens left wing Steve Begin adjusts his graduation cap after receiving his high school diploma Thursday in Montreal. “I have been lucky despite my less-than-intelligent decision to drop school,” Begin acknowledged at the ceremony. Everything is going well — but I always knew something was missing.” Begin, 40, said it was his friend, UFC champion and fellow Quebecer Georges St-Pierre, who challenged him to finish his studies. Roberge told reporters that the fact Begin studied online for free doesn’t make his diploma any less official.
