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.
Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
