Played in NHL All-Star Game (1956)
Missed majority of 1953-54 due to shoulder injury vs. Detroit, December 25, 1953. Suffered eventual career-ending leg injury in exhibition game vs. Montreal, September 24, 1956.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
