Former Capital Garnet “Ace” Bailey would have turned 65 today, but his life was tragically cut short in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Bailey at the time was a scout with the L.A. Kings and a friend of former Caps coach Bruce Boudreau.

Bailey played four seasons with the Capitals, from 1974 to 1978.
