Traded to Chicago by Detroit with Brian Smith for Ed Litzenberger, June 12, 1961. Claimed by St. Louis from Chicago in Expansion Draft, June 6, 1967. Traded to Philadelphia by St. Louis with Darryl Edestrand for Lou Angotti and Ian Campbell, June 11, 1968.
I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
