Played in NHL All-Star Game (1953)
Traded to Chicago by Montreal with Ken Mosdell for $30,000 with Montreal holding right of recall, May 17, 1956. Returned to Montreal by Chicago after training camp, October 10, 1956. Traded to Detroit by Montreal with Gene Achtymichuk and Claude Laforge for cash, June 3, 1958.
That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
