WCJHL Second All-Star Team (1949)
Traded to Cleveland (AHL) by NY Rangers with Eric Pogue for Andy Bathgate and Vic Howe, November 15, 1954. Suffered career-ending eye injury in game vs. Pittsburgh (AHL) February 27, 1955.
There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
