NHL Second All-Star Team (1988, 1990, 1991, 1994) Bill Masterton Trophy (1994) Lester Patrick Trophy (2010)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1996)
Traded to Boston by Vancouver with Vancouver's 1st round choice (Glen Wesley) in 1987 Entry Draft for Barry Pederson, June 6, 1986. Missed majority of 1991-92 due to thigh (October 15, 1991) and knee (January, 1992) injuries. Missed majority of 1992-93 due to knee surgery, September 17, 1992.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
