Father of Bob
Suspended for majority of 1952-53 season after CAHA refused to allow Attwell's transfer from London (OHA-B) to Montreal Jr. Canadiens (QJHL), September 2, 1952. Decision overturned by OHA, February 4, 1953. Traded to St. Louis by Montreal with Claude Cardin and Phil Obensdorf for cash, June 7, 1967. Traded to NY Rangers by St. Louis with Ron Stewart for Red Berenson and Barclay Plager, November 29, 1967.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
