King scouts die in crash
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Garnet "Ace" Bailey, director of pro scouting for the Los Angeles Kings, was one of 65 passengers aboard one of the flights that crashed into the World Trade Center on Tuesday.
Team spokesman Mike Altieri said Mark Bavis, an amateur scout for the Kings, also was aboard United Airlines Flight 175 -- the second plane to hit the skyscrapers in New York. The Boeing 767 was scheduled to fly from Boston to Los Angeles, where the Kings open training camp Wednesday.
"We've received confirmation from both of their families that they were on Flight 175," said Altieri.
Bailey, 53, who won two Stanley Cups as a player, was entering his 32nd season as a player or scout in the NHL -- his eighth as Kings director of pro scouting. He spent the previous 13 years as a scout with the Edmonton Oilers, who won five Stanley Cups during that time.
Bailey broke in with the Boston Bruins in the 1968-69 season, and spent five years with the Bruins, winning Stanley Cups in 1970 and '72. He spent parts of two seasons each with Detroit and St. Louis, and three-plus seasons with Washington.
