- Jan 4, 2001That is correct abnoiut the car accident. And he was a dangerous guy! I
heard stories about hoiw he carried gunus around and at one free agent camp,
therew a TV into a swimming pool and accosted anbother plkayers girlfriend
scaring the hell out of her!
But my favorite "Missing Link" story was when I met his mom at the draft the
year that he was selected. Here she was a very nice little petite lady and
we asked her about how he got a black eye. She jooked "I gave it to him".
HGEr and his sister were nice country people. Anyhow, later on we hear the
real story, apparently him and his brother took on a small army in a fight
at a local bar back home. Never a dull moment with ole Link!

Gaetz was in a pretty serious car accident, but I'm pretty sure it was
alcohol abuse that prevented him from continuing his NHL career. He had a
pretty violent incident in the minors where he threw, I belive, a portable
skate sharpener at the trainer (or somebody like that). In my mind Link's
another example of wasted talent, similar to Fogarty.
