Oldest Minor Pro Player
 
Anyone know the answers to these questions:. Who is currently the oldest player in any minor pro league? What is the record for most minor league games played and most career points?

Suggest you contact each league and ask. :D

See stickied thread for league websites.

Most ECHL Points all time is Louis Dumont at 890.

Most ECHL Goals of all time is Wes Goldie at 370. Goldie retired after the 11-12 season

Kory Karlander of the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL is 40. He's the oldest of whom I'm aware. I don't count Canadien Senior Leagues as professional.

Robin Bouchard is the career goal scoring leader in the minors. I don't know who has the most points off the top of my head.

Roberge has 752 goals and 1698 points, but I've seen people debate his status as a pro since the Eastern Hockey League was more of a semi-pro league in the 1950s and 1960s

Not only do the K-Wings have the oldest player in the ECHL, I believe they also have the second oldest player with Sam Ftorek, who turns 38 in two weeks.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=38001

The CHL's oldest player is 39 year old Brad Smyth, who previously played for 5 teams in the NHL.
SPHL's oldest player is Brett Hammond who is 31 years old
FHL's oldest player is Kelly Miller. Not to be confused with the Rangers' draft pick, the Kelly Miller that plays for the Danbury Whalers is 33 years old.

also learned while doing this search that Paul Mara is playing in Ontario (ECHL) after sitting out the entire 2011-12 season.

Chris Chelios played for the Chicago Wolves when he was 48. That is pretty outstanding. I'm hoping to make it to my 30s.

Thanks for that! Roberge played alot of years in Johnstown. Won't see that ever again.

Trevor Jobe and Joe Burton also both put up some big numbers too.

Tony Hand is still going at age 45. He only has one goal this season, but he also has 28 assists in 19 games which is leading the EPIHL.

Publicity stunt or not, Gordie Howe played for the Detroit Vipers of the IHL at age 69. I would think he technically owns the record for oldest minor pro player.

I've never quite figured out why Gordie Howe would agree to do that though. From what I know of Gordie, he wasn't the hugely egotistical type who'd sign a deal simply for the publicity of both playing at age 69 and playing in 6 consecutive decades. Since it was a one-game deal with the Vipers, he shouldn't have been under any illusions that he was going to stick around with the team. So I doubt he signed the deal under the impression it was as a "try-out."

Chelios was still a good player. He was like another coach on the ice.

This is from a Milwaukee fan who hates the Wolves.

He never was much of a goal scorer except in his younger days in the 80's and early 90's during the BHL era when the goalies were shocking. He has often been accused of "chiselling" i.e. telling the ref he got an assist on the goal but he has always denied this. I don't think it is true, I'm a linesman in the EPIHL and I don't recall ever seeing him chisel from the referee, all his assists were legit.

I've only seen him once so far this season and he looked only a tiny fraction of his former self, he missed a lot of passes which went for icing and they weren't much better in the offensive zone either. So it's pretty scary that he's still putting up those numbers.
