Memorial Cup All-Star Team (1988)
Traded to Boston by NY Islanders for Boston's 5th round choice (Petr Sachl) in 1996 Entry Draft, December 9, 1995. Named Head Coach of Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL), June 12, 2000.
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.
— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
