Nov 23--13 players

Nov 3

Nothing for any of the 13 players whose birthday it is, so from Sept 3

Gerry Meehan

Selected by Toronto Maple Leafs round 4 #21 overall 1963 NHL Amateur Draft

Centre Gerry Meehan was a fine scorer and playmaker who could also check effectively.

Meehan's career as an NHL player came to a sudden end in early December 1978, when his pro hockey rights were sold by Washington to Cincinnati (WHA). Upset by the move, Meehan initially refused to report to Cincinnati and took his family back to their home in Buffalo. After a few days, Meehan decided to honor his contract and accept the deal rather than retire. He went to Cincinnati, where he was promptly injured on his first shift and ended up playing a total of only two WHA games before opting to retire in 1979.

 After completing his undergraduate degree from Canisius College in Buffalo, he graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Law in 1982.
