Claimed by Atlanta from Boston in Expansion Draft, June 6, 1972. Transferred to Calgary after Atlanta franchise relocated, June 24, 1980. Traded to Quebec by Calgary for Jamie Hislop, January 30, 1981. Traded to Winnipeg by Quebec for Winnipeg's 7th round choice (Mark Vermette) in 1986 Entry Draft, October 14, 1985.
I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
