Traded to St. Louis by NY Rangers with Camille Henry and Bill Plager for Don Caley and Wayne Rivers, June 13, 1968. Replaced Glenn Hall in 1st period vs. NY Rangers after Hall was given a game misconduct, November 13, 1968. Shares NHL record with Christian Soucy for having shortest career (three minutes) in league history.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
