Clutterbuck/DiBenedetto

Apparently, Cal Clutterbuck and Justin DiBenedetto have a bit of a history...as teammates.

They played together with the Toronto St. Michael's Majors for half of the 2004-05 season before Clutterbuck was traded to Oshawa (where he would team with John Tavares the following season).  Di Benedetto would later move on to Sarnia, where he would finish 3rd in OHL scoring in 2008/09 -- Tavares led the OHL that season.

In a somewhat ironic twist, DiBenedetto was drafted by the Isles (175th overall in 2008) using a pick that the Isles obtained ...from Minnesota...in a trade for Chris Simon.  Simon would play his final 10 NHL games for the Wild late in the 2007-08 season.
