Memorial Cup All-Star Team (1983)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1989, 1991)
Missed entire 1991-92 due to knee surgery, June, 1991. Traded to San Jose by New Jersey with Ken Sutton for Doug Bodger and Dody Wood, December 7, 1997. Signed as a free agent by NY Rangers, July 22, 1998. Traded to Dallas by NY Rangers for future considerations, February 5, 2001. Signed as a free agent by Dallas, February 26, 2002. Officially announced retirement, June 7, 2002.
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.
