Missed entire 1978-79 season recovering from broken wrist, September, 1978. Traded to Toronto by Washington with Robert Picard and Washington's 2nd round choice (Bob McGill) in 1980 Entry Draft for Mike Palmateer and Toronto's 3rd round choice (Torrie Robertson) in 1980 Entry Draft, June 11, 1980. Signed as a free agent by Vancouver, October 13, 1981. Suspended for entire 1982-83 season for attack on referee Bob Hall, April 24, 1982. Signed as a free agent by Minnesota, July 2, 1983.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
