Brother of Barry and Ray OHA-Jr. MVP (1954) OHA-Jr. First All-Star Team (1954)

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.
