Traded to Hartford by Chicago for Hartford's 2nd round choice (Kevin Griffin) in 1981 Entry Draft, June 19, 1980. Traded to Winnipeg by Hartford for Ed Staniowski, November 10, 1983.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
