Whale Are They Now?

WHALE

 

WHALE’RE they now?

The Whalers have been gone from Hartford long enough that there are no longer any
former players on any team rosters in the NHL or AHL. that does not mean that Hartford has no connection to the NHL. Besides sons of former players, there are a number of former Whaler players who can be found in management, coaching, scouting, etc… for NHL teams. Below is a list of those former Whaler players and some notable former Whaler personnel who are still active in the NHL/AHL. If you are aware of anyone not listed here who is active in the NHL/AHL, please contact Al Victor so the list can be kept current. Thank you.
