Leaving on a jet plane

According to Eurohockey.net a few former ‘Clones have made the move to Europe….

Matt MacDonald joined HC Fassa in Italy, which is where Scott Reynolds spent last season.

Rory Rawlyk headed Germany, joining Herner EV 2007.

Cory Urquhart is also bound for Germany, where he’ll play for Heilbronner EC.

Donny Grover will be playing for the Adelaide Andrenaline in Australia.

And for those that go back a ways…

Evan Cheverie is still bouncing around Europe, and is currently playing for the Belfast Giants.

Garret Prosofsky is making a third trip across the pond after playing in the CHL for the last few years, joining REV Bremerhaven in Germany.

I can’t say I’m surprised here. Players like MacDonald, Urquhart, and Rawlyk, that seem to be solid ECHL talent, but can’t stick in the AHL, usually head to Europe to make some money before either retiring or making one last effort at making in the AHL.

Keep an eye out, I’m sure there will be more players heading to Europe in the upcoming months.
