Charlottetown Islanders Alum

We watched the 8th and final game from our living room in Charlottetown, PEI. At that time, I was the trainer for the Jr A Charlottetown Islanders. My family and I watched the game intently as we searched the crowd for the owners of the Charlotte Islanders Royce Scantlebury and Keith McLean who made the trek to Russia for the series. Both were single at the time, Royce was a carpenter and Keith owned a sign shop. Both men have since passed away. I guess the fact that I didn’t think they’d come back made the Henderson goal that more special.That game was a great memory for our entire family!
