CNDHL First All-Star Team (1943, 1944)
Traded to NY Rangers by Chicago with Emile Francis for Jim Henry, October 7, 1948. Loaned to Boston (Hershey-AHL) by NY Rangers to complete transaction that sent Zellio Toppazzini and Ed Harrison to NY Rangers (November 16, 1950), November 20, 1950.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
