It's too bad Wade Flaherty can not be here in Terrace for Hockeyville.
"Flats" is the most famous NHL graduate from Terrace. The goalie played in 120 NHL games, backing up many more. His professional career lasted 2 decades, coming to an end this week.
Flaherty, who has seen more minor league cities than hockey pucks, returned home from China, of all places. This past week he officially retired, accepting a job with the Chicago Blackhawks as the organization's goaltending development coach.
There was a great article in the National Post about Flats' time in China and his career.
i'm a great fan - the new agreement stiffed Flats out of significant time with Vancouver who were afraid to recall him and face his loss on the waiver wire. He deserved better!
