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.
For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
