Guy Trottier Passes Away
Former NHL/WHA player Guy Trottier has passed away after a battle with cancer. He was 73.
Trottier, dubbed "The Mouse" because of his tiny 5'8" 170lb frame, played 115 games in the NHL in the early 1970s. He played mostly with the Toronto Maple Leafs and briefly with the New York Rangers. He scored 28 goals and 45 points before jumping to the WHA for three seasons.
Prior to his time in the big leagues Trottier spent a lot of time in the minor leagues, most notably in Dayton, Ohio with the IHL Gems. He retired in Dayton and lived there until his death. He worked for a freighting company there for 20 years.
Guy was not related to New York Islanders superstar Bryan Trottier.
