18 years ago today the world changed forever and the hockey world did not escape unscathed as they lost two of the good ones in Los Angeles Kings scouts Garnet “Ace” Bailey and Mark Bavis. We remember that today. Everybody’s thinking hockey now and Elliotte Friedman’s got 31 thoughts he wants you to know about. Finally, a convo with 2019 No. 1 pick and also who a look at who could be No. 1 next year.
Our own Jimmy Murphy wrote this ten years ago for NESN.com. Ironically, a day Murph will never forget for the same reasons so many of us won’t, was actually his first day on the Boston Bruins beat. Just as the hockey community did that day, Murph lost a friend in former Bruin and two-time Stanley Cup champion Garnet “Ace” Bailey. (NESN.com)
