He played until 2005, primarily in the QPSHL/LNAH.

One of my favorite stories about him:

Hilarious article filled with great stories. Link Gaetz is quite a character. Great quote from Lou Nanne:

Quote:
On draft day in 1988, Gaetz was picked in the second round by the Minnesota North Stars. He'd been in a bar fight the night before and showed up with two black eyes. "In the first round we drafted Mike Modano to protect the franchise," says Lou Nanne, then the general manager of the Stars. "In the second round we drafted Link to protect Mike. In the third we should've drafted a lawyer to protect Link."
