WHL First All-Star Team (1979) Memorial Cup All-Star Team (1979)
Traded to Philadelphia by Hartford with Fred Arthur and Hartford's 1st (Ron Sutter) and 3rd (Miroslav Dvorak) round choices in 1982 Entry Draft for Rick MacLeish, Blake Wesley, Don Gillen and Philadelphia's 1st (Paul Lawless), 2nd (Mark Paterson ) and 3rd (Kevin Dineen) round choices in 1982 Entry Draft, July 3, 1981.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
