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.
The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
