Lost sight and use of right eye in game vs. University of Toronto, February 28, 1924. Missed entire 1924-25 season after OHA rejected transfer from Hamilton (OHA-Sr.) to Galt (OHA-Sr.). Signed as a free agent by Boston, November 16, 1925.
Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
