Can-Am Second All-Star Team (1936)
Signed as a free agent by Toronto, October 13, 1926. Traded to Ottawa by Toronto with cash for Frank Nighbor, January 31, 1930. Claimed by Detroit from Ottawa for 1931-32 season in Dispersal Draft, September 26, 1931. Signed as a free agent by NY Rangers after securing release from Ottawa (January 30, 1934), February 3, 1934.
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.
