My Mount Puckmore Four

A day late and a dollar short, 1967ers finally gets around to a Mount Puckmore post. :)

Former Leaf Mike Stothers now an Atlanta assistant.

"The Atlanta Thrashers have named Mike Stothers as an assistant coach, club announces" Mike Stothers was a 6'4" defenseman picked up from Philly in early 1987-88. A Brophy type, big and tough, Mike played 18 games - contributing 1 assist, 42 penalty minutes and a -6. He finished out the year in Newmarket. Mike asked to be traded back to Philly. The Leafs obliged, but he never got out of the AHL again. At the time, it was said that he'd rather play in the minors in Philly than in the NHL with Toronto. There were probably extenuating circumstances, family etc., but I remember being pretty bent out of shape over that one. Wore #25, I think. (Ed. Note: Yup)
