In another installment where I review the dwindling number of players remaining from a relocated franchise... today it's the Hartford Whalers.
Glen Wesley-CAR (the only current Hurricane to have played for The Whale)
Note: the following lists may not be all-inclusive, but do give a feel for the former Whalers in non-playing roles. Additions are more than welcome.
Ron Francis-Asst. GM, Carolina Hurricanes
Ken Holland-GM, Detroit Red Wings
Don Maloney-GM, Phoenix Coyotes
Randy Cunneyworth-Head Coach, Rochester Americans (AHL)
Kevin Dineen-Head Coach, Portland Pirates (AHL)
Dean Evason-Asst Coach, Washington Capitals (NHL)
Doug Jarvis-Asst Coach, Montreal Canadiens (NHL)
Brad McCrimmon-Associate Coach, Atlanta Thrashers (NHL)
Jack McIlhargey-Asst Coach, Philadelphia Flyers (NHL)
Joel Quenneville-Head Coach, Colorado Avalanche (NHL)
Ulf Samuelsson-Asst Coach, Phoenix Coyotes (NHL)
John Stevens-Head Coach, Philadelphia Flyers (NHL)
Dave Tippett-Head Coach, Dallas Stars (NHL)
Ryan Malone (son of Greg)
That takes care of the former WHA franchises that have relocated. My next and final review is of the Minnesota North Stars.
