CHL Second All-Star Team (1983) AHL Second All-Star Team (1969)
Signed as a free agent by St. Louis, September 28, 1981. Transferred to Quebec by St. Louis with Gord Donnelly as compensation for St. Louis' signing of Jacques Demers as coach, August 19, 1983.
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.
