By Bobby ChangI thought it might be a good time to recall last year's post about Mark Bavis. The ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays, the 3-time champions of AA-level hockey (the most proficient current team), still hang the #12.
On October 13, 2001, the South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL formally retired the jersey of Mark Bavis, who was killed along with fellow Los Angeles Kings scout Garrett (Ace) Bailey on United Airlines Flight 175 which hit the South Tower at 0903.
