Played in NHL All-Star Game (1975, 1978)
Suspended by NHL for first 10 games of 1982-83 season for assault on referee Andy Van Hellemond, April 25, 1982. Missed majority of 1982-83 due to finger injury vs. NY Islanders (November 18, 1982) and knee injury vs. Vancouver, December 31, 1982.
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.
