Traded to NY Rangers by Boston for Gus Kyle, cash and the rights to Pentti Lund, September 20, 1951. Claimed on waivers by Montreal from NY Rangers, February 20, 1955.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
