Well, there's Cam Talbot, the starting goalie for the Edmonton Oilers.  🤔

Good call, left UAH in 2010.  Any before or since?  Nobody else on the Chargers in the Pros webpage, though the list is noteworthy.  I'm sticking with my "one helluva long shot" position.

Keep it up, Perfesser, and we'll trade you to the KHL hockey boards for a used balalaika & a molting ushanka.

It takes a little while for things to register now days. But I believe the Alabama football program probably makes a dollar or two even aver having to pay the coach.

Only repeating the assumption widely bandied about at the time for why the BoT suddenly wanted UAH and UAB to cut their hockey and football teams respectively.  As I haven’t seen anything to refute it I am left to believe it was true.

U.S. hockey fans' heads don't work that way.  Tier I junior teams (USHL) always tout themselves as being one step away from "The Show," but very few fans at that level are attracted to the game in their hometown simply to see future professional hockey stars-in-waiting play.  And even if you & your 299 friends thought differently, it'd be one helluva long shot to ever see a former UAH player make an NHL roster.  I could find no evidence of any doing so to date, nor even evidence of current or recent players being invited to NHL development camps.

I was talking more about the players on the teams that come here. But there have been a few that played at least some games in the NHL.

I'm sure the reason was money, just not sure it was the football program that was in need.
