Claimed by Springfield (AHL) from New Westminster (WHL) in Inter-League Draft, June 3, 1958. Traded to Toronto by Springfield (AHL) for Frank Roggeveen, June 9, 1959. Officially announced his retirement, February 4, 1964.
He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
