AHL First All-Star Team (1972) Harry "Hap" Holmes Memorial Award (fewest goals against AHL) (1972) (shared with Ross Brooks)
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.
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.
