This is Brantt Myhres as a Lowell Lock Monster. He was also a Spokane Chief, a Lethbridge Hurricane, a Portland Winterhawk and a Bonnyville Baron before that. Myhres had an NHL career and was an Edmonton Oiler for a very brief time:
1. Traded from Tampa Bay with a conditional pick to Edmonton for Vladimir Vujtek and a 3rd rd pick in the 1998 Entry Draft (July 15, 1997)
2. Traded from Edmonton Oilers to Philadelphia Flyers for Jason Bowen (October 15, 1997)
Myhres’ old team (the Chiefs) have made it to the Memorial Cup this spring. Mirtle has it covered over on his site and it’s worth following every year because it means so damn much. You’d think I’d be a little torn about which team to cheer for, since Spokane is in America and Kitchener, Belleville and Gatineau are in Canada.
But I’ve been to Spokane and love the place. If you’re ever down that way make sure to take a few days and spend it at nearby Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. It’s so pretty it should be an hour from Lake Louise.
