Gibson and Hay both became dentists and Willson a medical doctor. All three went on to play with the Portage Lake Hockey Club in Houghton, Michigan. Hay and Willson played for the club from 1901 to 1902 while Gibson also played for the club in the IHL in 1904–05 and 1906–07. Percy Willson also refereed games in the IHL.
