OHL Second All-Star Team (1983) Missed majority of 1985-86 season recovering from knee injury suffered in game vs. Los Angeles, December 8, 1985. Traded to Pittsburgh by Winnipeg with Jim Kyte and Randy Gilhen for Randy Cunneyworth, Rick Tabaracci and Dave McLlwain, June 17, 1989. Traded to Vancouver by Pittsburgh with Dave Capuano and Dan Quinn for Rod Buskas, Barry Pederson and Tony Tanti, January 8, 1990. Signed as a free agent by Ottawa, July 30, 1992.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
