    Forward for the Atlanta Flames (1973-79) and the Chicago Black Hawks (1979-86)

    He earned a 20 game suspension for his actions as a result.
    He led the Flames in scoring during his first five years with the team.
    He was the Flames all-time leader in assists and points, prior to the relocation to Calgary.
    He served as the Flames captain for a year and a half prior to his trade to Chicago.
    He settled in the Atlanta area, long after the Flames relocated and was visible at Atlanta Thrashers games when the NHL returned to the city.
