IHL First All-Star Team (1969)
Traded to Los Angeles by NY Rangers with Jim Murray and Ken Turlick for Barclay Plager, June 16, 1967. Claimed on waivers by Des Moines (IHL) from Omaha (CHL), November, 1967. Traded to Fort Wayne (IHL) by Des Moines (IHL) for Ron Burman, November, 1969.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
