Time to flex those hockey brains mofos!!!!! Another edition of “Who Am I...?” coming your way....right after we review the last installment:
1. I won scoring titles in two different leagues. (1993/1994 - WHL - Portland Winter Hawks - 152 points and 2000/2001 - Swiss A - Davos HC - 60 points)
2. I went undrafted in the NHL entry draft, but was signed as a free agent. (Signed with Vancouver in 1994)
3. I currently coach. (Fort William North Starts - Superior International Junior Hockey League)
4. I am a Spengler Cup Champion. (2001 - Davos HC)
5. I played for two NHL franchises, both of them in Canada. (Vancouver and Toronto)
Who Am I? I’m Lonny Bohonos!!!
Apparently Lonny was a no brainer for some. Let’s hope this one isn’t a gimme and tests people’s knowledge a bit! Here are this week’s clues:
1. I was an NHL draft pick.
2. I played my entire NHL career with a single team.
3. I began my NHL coaching career with an expansion team in their inaugural season.
4. I am a two time coach of the year.
5. In my coaching career I was in three finals, winning one.
Give it your best shot folks! As usual, support those answers with some facts when you post them in the comments. Have at it!!!
