Former Worcester hockey pros: where are they playing now? 2020-21 final edition

With all the North American pro leagues headed toward the end of their seasons, we’ll use the opportunity to take our final look at where all the former Worcester pro hockey players landed this season. North American players are generally listed by the highest league they’ve played in so far this season, European players are listed by their latest teams. Players who appeared in NHL games appear in bold.

In what will be a feature just for this list, any former Worcester player that the Railers can claim back at the end of this season due to the ECHL/PHPA agreement for teams that opted out of the 2020-21 season due to COVID restrictions will be italicized, and players listed on an NHL organization’s taxi-squad will also be noted. Listed at the bottom are other players the Railers signed for the 2020-21 season and can claim back.

This list is accurate as of the morning of Sunday, April 25th.
