WHL West First All-Star Team (1986) IHL Second All-Star Team (1990)
Missed majority of 1990-1993 and entire 1993-94 due to knee injury originally vs. Muskegon (IHL), January 6, 1990. Signed as a free agent by Hartford, July 8, 1992. Suffered career-ending knee injury in exhibition game vs. Ottawa, September 14, 1994. Officially announced retirement, September 22, 1994.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
