Brother of Doug
Missed majority of 1977-78 due to spinal fusion surgery, October, 1977. Traded to Los Angeles by Montreal with Montreal's 1st round choice (Jay Wells) in 1979 Entry Draft for Los Angeles' 1st round choice (Gilbert Delorme) in 1981 Entry Draft, October 5, 1978.
I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
