That's good news. Although he was tough Vother always had his number in games I saw them on the ice at the same time. However he was a frightening sight close up when he took his helmet off, coloured mohican haircut etc.
Over-riding memory of Payette (aside from 'that' first game in Cardiff) where he dominated, was him taking the playoff trophy from his teammates to give to the fans to drink out of in the Castle (now Legend) in Nottingham. Struck me as a very classy move.
'He was discharged from hospital and dropped off at an unknown house by the police. He has since gone off the radar again with his family reporting his phone has been stolen. Worrying time for them being so far away and unable to do anything. It seems he isn't ready to accept help yet, I hope he is found safe and well soon'
If true this is not good. I hope that he is found safe and well also.
