Where are they now? Updating the 2004 Stanley Cup Lightning

Is there anyone left getting paid to play hockey?

Since last this chart was updated a few of Tampa’s Immortals have hung up the skates. Some did it quietly, other’s with a bit more panache (and vulgarity). With no member of the 2004 Stanley Cup team in the NHL during the 2016-17 we took a look to see if anyone was still playing professionally.

In the end, there was one. Martin Cibak, 1998 9th round pick, played in 29 games for Liptovsky Mikulas HK, his hometown team in Slovakia. The 36-year-old had six goals and six assists. It’s his second stint with the club as he played 4 games with them during the 2004-05 lockout.

This list comes with a small disclaimer. It only represents players that played a significant role for the club during the Cup run. Eric Perrin (4 games) and Alex Svitov (11 games) had cups of coffee with the team and are still skating around Europe.

Where are they now?
