Biography

This gritty, hard checking winger played nearly 500 games in the NHL for Washington, Buffalo and Toronto.

His most productive year came during the 1989-90 season when he put up 21 goals and 15 assists for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

His work ethic did not go unnoticed in Toronto as he was selected to take over as assistant captain when Wendel Clark went down with an injury.
