As the professional hockey season gets underway, I have compiled a list of former UMD players (and some other local names) currently playing professional hockey.
Please note that this list is not final, and there is still research to be done to find guys who may be playing in Europe.
If you know of the professional whereabouts of any former UMD player that isn't on this list, please e-mail me at the above address.
Also, if you know of any other local players who are still playing somewhere, I'd love to know about it.
