IHL Northern Division Second All-Star Team (1949) NBSHL First All-Star Team (1954)
Traded to NY Rangers by Detroit for cash, June, 1949. Suspended for entire 1956-57 regular season by Fredericton (NBSHL) for refusing to play game vs. Saint John, March 7, 1956.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
