Played in NHL All-Star Game (1988)
Signed as a free agent by Chicago, July 23, 1994. Suspended for entire 1994-95 season for violating NHL substance abuse policy, September 2, 1994. Missed majority of 1997-98 due to rotator cuff injury vs. Detroit, November 16, 1997. Officially announced his retirement November 16, 2002.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
