The story is here.
I remember him as a prospect early in the Oilers NHL era, he played with Don Ashby and a few other prospects in Wichita (Ace Bailey was their coach). A lot of those guys went too early, and you can add Walt Poddubny’s name to the list.
He wasn’t just a cup of coffee player either, he had a career. Poddubny moved to center in NYC and was an All-Star while a Ranger.
