Back…And Where Are They Now?

It’s nice to be back in sunny Oregon after leaving cloudy, drizzly Southern California…yes, you read that right!

Had a great time, despite cool, wet weather…and now I’m ready to get back at it with the Portland Winterhawks who had a pretty good couple of games in BC while I was gone.  Todd Vrooman recapped the games pretty well over on his blog at Inside the Coliseum…so, check it out, the links on the left.

  1. Great list, Andy. I wonder if any Hawk alums are playing in Australia. I thought I read about at least one or two WHL graduates. Just a thought after a long day.

    Interesting that there seems to be no news of delays caused by Presiden Obama’s visit tomorrow. I’ll check here for any news. If anyone knows, YOU will!


  2. Thanks very much for this, Andy. There’s many players on that list I was wondering about! Much appreciated.
