Where Are They Now?

Got curious about past 67s and spent some time looking them up. The most curious player tracking is that of Jason Bailey. According to the AHL List of Transactions, Jason was sent down to the Bakersfield Condors on the 17th. The ECHL List of Transactions has no record of him arriving. And the Bakersfield Condors Roster does not include Jason. Has he gone AWOL? Perhaps it's just a time-lag on getting information up to date (although the transaction lists are current to the 19th). Things that make you go hmmmmm.

Update: Jason is now showing up in the Condor info. As I thought, it was a time lag in getting their information up to date. Here's the updated roster. By all reports, it would have been out of character for him to have done anything else. Here's wishing him every success.

The St. Francis Xavier varsity hockey team has 6 former Ottawa 67s playing: Wil Colbert, Chris Hulit, Robbie Lawrance, Danny Battochio, Jeremy Akeson and Brett Liscombe. Meanwhile the Carleton Ravens have Brodie Beard patrolling the blue line in their second year. And Mattieu Methot is the lone 67s playing for the Ottawe Gee-Gees.

The last of my explorations was to find out where Brad Bonello is. At last report, he was playing for the ECHL Dayton Bombers. This year finds him playing for the Texas Brahmas. in the Central Hockey League.

This league wins for having the most amusing team names:

Amarillo Gorillas
Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs
Corpus Christi Icerays
Mississippi Riverkings
Arizona Sundogs
Colorado Eagles
Laredo Bucks
New Mexico Scorpions
Odessa Jackalopes
Rapid City Rush
Rocky Mountain Rage
Tulsa Oilers
Oklahoma City Blazers
Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees
Texas Brahmas
Wichita Thunder

What you could do with a team name like Killer Bees!

67s, angry pucks and fuzzy raccoons now seem a bit pedestrian don't they.

If you know what some former 67s are up to, drop me a line and we'll share that will the rest of the fans.
