EAHL First All-Star Team (1936)
Signed as a free agent by NY Rangers, November, 1936. Traded to Hershey (IAHL) by NY Rangers for cash, April 4, 1940. Traded to NY Americans (Springfield-AHL) by Hershey for John Sorrell, February 14, 1941.
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.
