Ultimately, Floyd did show that he possessed a lot of skill and a scoring touch. The only thing was he did so as a career
I know I said that he signed with the Devils after playing with the Amerks, but he only played one game there, so
essentially, he signed as an undrafted free agent after 4 seasons with the Petersborough Petes of the OHL. Had to
include that bit of info in this.
In his minor league career, he had scored 30+ goals 5 times, and achieved 40 once: his first pro season when the Devils
sent him to play with the CHL's Wichita Wind. As well, three of those 30+ seasons were indeed with the Maine
Mariners, and fell 1 goal shy of having 4.
While playing with the CB Oilers, he was also an assistant coach. That would be his only season with them.
He would finish his career in the I, playing one season with the Phoenix Roadrunners and 4 with the San Diego Gulls.
During his last 2 summers with the Gulls, he also took to playing roller hockey, joining the Barracudas of RHI for a
handful of games.
He went on to coach for the Detroit Falcons of the Colonial League for the 94-95 season, then followed that with 3
successful seasons with the Huntsville Channel Cats (first, in the Southern Hockey League, then, the latter 2 seasons in
the Central Hockey League), and one more with the United League's Flint Generals. I have nothing of him after 1999,
though. I do have word that he is still living in Alabama these days.
He was inducted into the Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame in 2016 for his success in hockey and lacrosse.
