Brother of Neal and Aaron
Claimed by Dallas from NY Rangers in Waiver Draft, October 3, 1993. Traded to St. Louis by Dallas for Guy Carbonneau, October 2, 1995. Signed as a free agent by Cincinnati (IHL), August 25, 1997.
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.
