Professional Hockey Player. Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, he played as Defenseman in the National Hockey League for ten seasons (1967 to 1977) with the St. Louis Blues. Originally his rights were held by the New York Ranges, but were acquired with future star Red Berenson by the newly enfranchised Blues in 1967. He became a defensive mainstay for the new team, being named team Captain in 1970, a role he would hold until he neared retirement. Named as an NHL All-Star four times (1970, 1971, 1973, 1974) after his career wound down and he retired, he held the Blues' team record for most games played. His career totals were 44 goals, 187 assists and 231 points. His post playing career saw him as an assistant coach for the Blues, as well as a year as Head Coach. He passed away in 1988 from an inoperable brain tumor. His number 8 has been retired by the Blues.
