Professional Hockey Player, September 11th Terrorist Attack Victim. Known as "Ace," he won two Stanley Cups as a player with the Boston Bruins. He broke in with Boston in the 1968-69 season, and spent five years with the team, winning Stanley Cups in 1970 and 1972. He spent parts of two seasons each with the Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues, and three-plus seasons with the Washington Capitals. In 1978 he jumped to the World Hockey Association, joining the Edmonton Oilers, where he was a linemate of then-teenage phenom Wayne Gretzky. Retiring after that season, he coached for one year each with Edmonton's CHL affiliates in Houston, Texas and Wichita, Kansas, then became a scout for the Oilers the next year. He later became director of pro scouting for the Los Angeles Kings, a post he held for 22 years. Ace Bailey was one of 65 passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 175 that was hijacked by Al-Qaeda terrorists on September 11, 2001 and was crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, instantly killing all on board. His name can be found on Panel S-3 of the National September 11 Memorial in Manhattan, New York City, New York. A cenotaph was erected for him in his family’s plot in Lloydminster Cemetery, Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, Canada.
