Legends of Hockey:
Quote:
Over his nine seasons with the club, he established himself as a solid and consistent performer who missed only 21 games during that time?five of which were lost so that he could play in the Calgary Olympics in 1988. During most of his career as a Flame, he was a team leader, skating alongside his co-captain and linemate, Lanny McDonald. Together, they led the Flames through the great battles of Alberta that were waged against their provincial rival, the Edmonton Oilers.
He plays every forward position.

Shifted to center for early part of his NHL career after having played right wing up until that point...Shifted to left wing from center prior to 1984-85
