#2441512 Babcock playing in the UK

Posted by Godscrasher on 04 October 2013 - 08:47 AM

Hi,

 

From the UK here, came across this video clip on Youtube and thought it might serve well here. 

 

Babcock played for my local team the Whitley Warriors who are based in Whitley Bay on the coast of Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England. There is a small article on his Wiki page about his short playing/coaching career in the UK.

 

Babcock was a trio of signing for the Warrriors along with Scott Morrison and Luc Chabot. This was at a time when Ice Hockey in the UK was gaining vast popularity. Sadly it is nowhere near as exciting as it used to be these days.

 

The following video shows Babcock in action against Fife Flyers (scottish team) in the play off finals held at Wembley Arena.
