QMJHL Second All-Star Team (1975) Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award (AHL Rookie of the Year) (1976) (co - winner - Greg Holst) AHL Second All-Star Team (1977)
Suffered eventual career-ending eye injury in game vs. Hartford, March 9, 1985.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
