Worcester IceCats from the past: where are they playing now? (2012-13 edition)

I know what you’re thinking…”what’s this hockey stuff doing on his non-hockey blog?”. Well, I’m going to tell you. Both the lists of active former Worcester Sharks and San Jose Sharks ended up on Sharkspage, but while I posted the IceCats list there last season it didn’t seem like it belonged. So, since this space is all mine I decided it belonged here.

Below is a list every former player for the Worcester IceCats still playing pro hockey, and where they are playing this season. The teams that are listed are the highest level a player had played this season. Back-up goaltenders and other players that were signed but did not appear in games are not listed. When you consider the last IceCats game was played in the 2005-2006 season, there are still a lot of guys playing. This list is accurate as of Sunday, January 27, 2013.
