Rookie of the Year Award WHL Coast Division (1957)
Traded to Springfield (AHL) by Detroit with Bill McCreary and Hank Bassen for Gerry Ehman, May 1, 1958. Claimed by NY Rangers from Springfield (AHL) in Inter-League Draft, June, 1961.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
