Jan 16--Another no-show

Second day in a row, 18 players today-NADA. Today Brantford's own Len Hachborn. This is from the summer when I was on holidays and did not post. Just catching up on Sept 4th birthdate.

Len Hachborn

Selected by Philadelphia Flyers round 9 #184 overall 1981 NHL Entry Draft.

He was called up during the 1983-1984 season and played 78 games for the Flyers before being sent down the Hershey Bears during the '84-'85 season. During his stint with the Flyers, he had 16 goals and 38 assists.

Hachborn was sold to the L.A. Kings in 1985 and played 24 games for his new team during the 1985-1986 season before returning to the AHL. He has since played for a number of teams in North America and Europe and was signed by the Phoenix Mustangs in 1999.

Played left wing on line with Wayne Gretzky growing up in Brantford, Ontario. As 10-year-olds, Hachborn and Brian Croley were playing on Gretzky's line when Gretzky scored 378 goals in 84 games. The goalie on that team was former Red Wing Greg Stefan. I knew his brother's (ex) wife so I got these items signed IP--except I wasn't the person that got them. I also got to see the wedding invitation to Gretzky's wedding as they were invited. Gee, guess I should have asked for that.

  1. I never knew the Maine Mariners were affiliated with the Flyers. I always thought of them as being with the Bruins.
