Interesting. I was doing searches for him today (and never though eurohockey.net, but that's your neck of the woods) and couldn't find him anywhere. This, after an article in the J-town paper this morning talking about their 5 "keepers" for the Chiefs didn't mention him.

The guy is a superstar at the ECHL/UHL level. Besides Cey, there was no more valuable member of that team.

And by 5...
