Played in NHL All-Star Game (1934)
Traded to Boston by Toronto for cash, May 12, 1934. Traded to Montreal by Boston with Ray Getliffe for Herb Cain, October 10, 1939. Loaned to NY Rangers by Montreal with John Mahaffy, Dutch Hiller, Fern Gauthier and future considerations (Tony Demers, December, 1943) for the loan of Phil Watson, October 27, 1943.
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.
