OHL First All-Star Team (1984)
Traded to San Jose by Chicago for San Jose's 3rd round choice (Bogdan Savenko) in 1993 Entry Draft, September 20, 1991. Traded to Buffalo by San Jose for Dave Snuggerud, March 9, 1992. Signed as a free agent by NY Rangers, August 31, 1995. Traded to Toronto by NY Rangers for Sergio Momesso, February 29, 1996.
I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
