Golden Puck Award as Swedish Player of the Year (1984) Swedish Elite League All-Star Team (1984)
Traded to Dallas by Philadelphia for Dallas' 8th round choice (Raymond Giroux) in 1994 Entry Draft, March 21, 1994.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
