Where are they now?

Early in the season, Dan Spang’s coach in Worcester predicted he’d be skating at the Shark Tank before the end of the season. Spang was headed in that direction before an injury cut his season short. A review of his first pro season, from Hockeysfuture.com says “Spang stands an excellent chance at an NHL career, where he could be a middle pairing defenseman.”

David VanderGulik played all 80 games this season for the Flames’ farm team, the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights, indicating his injuries are all behind him. Vandy finished fourth on the team scoring chart with a 16-27-43 line and his +27 was best on the Knights.

Carl Corazzini had another strong season for the Chcago’s Norfolk Admirals AHL club, scoring 28 goals and 27 assists and adding four more goals in six playoff games, which earned him a seven-game call-up to the BlackHawks.

Dale Dunbar, who played four seasons on the Terrier blueline in the early 1980s, is a high school coach in his hometown of Winthrop and also a scout and recruiter for The Bobby Orr Group. The Salem News suggests he’d make a good candidate for the vacant head coaching position at St. John’s Prep in Peabody (where current Terrier John McCarthy starred in hockey and football).
