Anyone know what happened to these guys? It seems like they were big time scorers who just fizzled out and vanished. I was going through Chouinard's profile on hockey reference and noticed that he suddenly stopped player at age 27 - just two years after scoring 80 points in 64 games. He had previously peaked at 107 points in 1979. Wikipedia says he was traded to STL for future considerations in 1983 (following a 72 point season with Calgary) and that he opted to retire after starting the '84-'85 season with Peoria in the AHL. Why was he demoted to the AHL when he was younger than 30 and had proven to be able to produce in the NHL? He had only 46 points in 64 games in his lone season with STL (not great totals for that time), but why did the Blues - who weren't exactly loaded back then - not give him another chance? Why did the Flames just dump him anyway? https://www.hockey-reference.com/players/c/chouigu01.html As for Pavelich, he started off with three straight seasons of 75 or more points and then became less productive (45 points in 48 games and 40 in 59). He had 10 points in 12 games with Minny in '87 and then left the NHL altogether until making a brief comeback with the Sharks in '91. Apparently he was on USA's "Miracle on Ice" team in 1980... https://www.hockey-reference.com/players/p/pavelma02.html Mike Rogers went from the WHA to the NHL and had 100+ points in his first three seasons. His production fell off in the next three years and then he had five points in 17 games split between the Rangers and Oilers and was gone. https://www.hockey-reference.com/players/r/rogermi01.html Blaine Stoughton played in the NHL in the 1970s before jumping to the WHA. He returned to the NHL in '79-'80 and had 100 points in his first season back. He had some more 70+ point seasons for the Whalers and then his production tapered off when he scored 44 points in 68 games in a season split between the Whalers and Rangers. After that, he was done in the NHL at age 30. https://www.hockey-reference.com/players/s/stougbl01.html Does anyone know why these players fell off at a relatively young age and why they didn't get more chances to play in the big League?
