Playing careerEdit

Baby was drafted in the seventh round, 188th overall, by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. Drafted from the United States Hockey League's Green Bay Gamblers, Baby played four seasons with Cornell University before joining the Thrashers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Chicago Wolves, in the 2003–04 season.

Baby graduated from Cornell University in 2003, where he was a member of the Quill and Dagger society. While at Cornell a popular cheer for fans of the Big Red consisted of a parody of Bruce Channel's hit Hey! Baby with the lyrics changed to extol Baby's pugnacious nature on the ice.[2]
