Prior to the WorSharks playing in Worcester the city was the home to the IceCats (1994-2005), the NHL affiliate of the St Louis Blues with the occasional duel affiliation with the Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders thrown into the mix in the early seasons. I recently posted a a list on AHLfans.net of players that were still playing from the IceCats which drew some comments on twitter asking about former WorSharks and where they were playing.

Below is a list every former player for the WorSharks no longer in the San Jose organization and if/where they are playing this season. The teams that are listed are the highest level a player had played this season, or in the case of splitting time between the NHL and minors both teams are mentioned. Back-up goaltenders and other players that were signed but did not appear in games are not listed.
