WHL East First All-Star Team (1985) NHL All-Rookie Team (1986)
Traded to Calgary by Hartford with Shane Churla for Neil Sheehy, Carey Wilson and the rights to Lane MacDonald, January 3, 1988. Traded to Vancouver by Calgary for Ron Stern and Kevan Guy, March 5, 1991. Missed majority of 1997-98 due to knee injury vs. Dallas, December 27, 1997.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
