Cory's Father

Robert Larry Mickey (October 21, 1943 – July 23, 1982) was a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Chicago Black Hawks, New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres. Mickey started his NHL career with the Black Hawks during the 1964–65 season.
While Mickey had many accomplishments in the NHL, he was also known for his community involvement with youth hockey and children with special needs. Mickey is recognized as one of the early founders of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres. This franchise was established in Buffalo, New York in 1975. During its history, a half-dozen former Buffalo Sabres served as head coach or assistant coach. Mickey coached the team from 1975 to the end of the 1977 season.
