Brother of Dave WCJHL First All-Star Team (1977, 1978)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1981)
Claimed by Pittsburgh from St. Louis in Waiver Draft, October 9, 1984. Traded to Quebec by Pittsburgh for future considerations, October 20, 1985. Traded to Hartford by Quebec for Greg Malone, January 17, 1986.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
