NHL Second All-Star Team (1956) NHL First All-Star Team (1959) James Norris Trophy (1959)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1952, 1953, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1963)
Signed as a free agent by Montreal, April 30, 1947. Claimed by Boston from Montreal in Waiver Draft, June 4, 1963. Suffered career-ending leg injury in game vs. Chicago, February 28, 1965.
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.
