Tonight I was in a reminiscing mood and got to thinking about the first Flyer game I ever went to. I live in New York so it was a road game @NYI on March 9th 1999. I found a box score up to look at who scored and what not, trying to piece together the memories. It was all hazy apart from the outcome, a 2-2 tie.
Then I saw that Dmitri Tertyshny scored. I immediately recalled the guy, a quick mobile defensemen if memory serves.
But he just kinda disappeared so I wiki'd him and what I learned a few minutes ago absolutely shocked me. I was a young kid back in 1999 and obviously didn't follow the team as closely as I do now. I had no idea what had happened to Dmitri Tertyshny. Very sad.
