    Missing Saginaw Spirit hockey player Terry Trafford was in trouble with team, girlfriend says

    Skye Cieszlak, who has dated Trafford since he first came to Saginaw in 2010, said she believes Trafford was cut from the Ontario Hockey League team prior to his disappearance on Monday, March 3.
    "He had gotten into trouble for partying on a road trip and they were sending him home for good," Cieszlak said. "He was devastated."
    she last heard from Trafford on Sunday, March 2, when he sent her multiple text messages saying that he loved her. He also sent a message that greatly concerned Cieszlak.

    "He texted me and told me his life was over and that he didn't want to do it anymore," Cieszlak said.

    Between the hard partying and the years of a very traumatic contact sport, I worry in cases like this if he doesn't have the beginnings of a frontal lobe injury which would inhibit his ability to make calm and good decisions, especially in a brain where the prefrontal cortex is still developing, as it does until 25. I wonder how many concussions he's had.
    Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

    Being 20yrs old, it is his last year in the OHL, unless a team picks him up as an over ager for his 21st year. Being cut from his team means the end of his hockey career, as no other OHL team would pick him up now. Must have been a very depressing time for him to hear that he was being cut from the team.

    hmm, so he didn't cross the border back into Canada. Woudl there be an active search going on by US LE, even if he is not a citizen?

    Prayers for Terry to reach out, I pray he is safe and just needed a little time to ground himself.

    Does he have a cell phone ? When was it last active.
    This sounds very scary.
    Don't mind the misspellings.

    “We, along with the Ontario Hockey League, have been working diligently and doing all that is possible to assist in the process of locating Terry,” Saginaw Spirit managing partner Craig Goslin said. “Our primary concern remains to assist the professionals that are diligently working to locate Terry and all activities have been focused on that support for them.”

    Trafford’s former teammate and Calgary Flames forward Sean Monahan shared his best wishes on Sunday


    ETA- I get emails about what is happening in the Hockey world daily, sometimes more. Amazed this is the first I have heard about this. (And I live in MI, not heard a thing).

    This doesn't sound good. I hope he just needed to get away to get his head on straight.

    p.s. I wrote this before the posts about the body went up.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I had hoped he was just "checked out" to get his head right.
