WCHA First All-Star Team (1979) NCAA West First All-American Team (1979)
Traded to Colorado by Montreal for Colorado's 3rd round choice (Daniel Letendre) in 1983 Entry Draft, March 10, 1981. Traded to St. Louis by Colorado for Joe Micheletti and Dick Lamby, December 4, 1981. Claimed by NY Rangers from St. Louis in Waiver Draft, October 4, 1982.
Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
