Missed the entire 1958-59 due to leg injury suffered in football game between Winnipeg Blue Bombers (CFL) and Saskatchewan Roughriders (CFL), September 7, 1958. Loaned to Winnipeg (WHL) by Toronto (Victoria-WHL) for the remainder of the 1960-61 season for Barrie Ross, January, 1961.
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.
