Judge in B.C. issues arrest warrant for ex-NHL enforcer Link Gaetz

An ex-NHL enforcer dubbed the Missing Link is wanted by Mounties in British Columbia's Interior but not for anything he's done on the ice.

A provincial court judge in Kamloops, B.C., issued an arrest warrant Thursday for Link Gaetz, who failed to appear in court or contact his lawyer.

The warrant allows arrest and detention of Gaetz until he is brought before a judge.

"They're now looking for the Missing Link," Jeremy Jensen, Gaetz's lawyer, told the newspaper Kamloops This Week.

Jensen also asked the judge that he be removed as Gaetz's lawyer.

Gaetz was nicknamed Missing Link during his brief NHL career with the San Jose Sharks in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

He was charged with assault and causing a disturbance after an incident at a fast-food restaurant in the community of Cache Creek April 20, 2012.

The complainant died in a drowning accident last year, and the Crown dropped the assault charge.

A second charge of causing a disturbance remains outstanding.
