EAHL First All-Star Team (1947) AHL Second All-Star Team (1954) Lester Patrick Trophy (1980)
Traded to Cleveland (AHL) by NY Rangers with Ed Reigle, Jackie Gordon, Fern Perreault and cash for Hy Buller and Wally Hergesheimer, May 14, 1951.
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.
