NHL rights transferred to Detroit from Chicago (AHA) after AHA club owners purchased Detroit (NHL and IAHL) franchises, September 2, 1932. Traded to Boston by Detroit with Cooney Weiland for Marty Barry and Art Giroux, July 11, 1935. Traded to Montreal by Boston with Jean Pusie and cash for Roger Jenkins, July 13, 1935.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
