Brother of Terry
Claimed by Boston from Pittsburgh (AHL) in Inter-League Draft, June 5, 1956. Missed entire 1958-59, 1959-60, 1961-62, 1962-63 seasons playing professional baseball in the Milwaukee Braves farm system.
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.
