In the final of the 1987 Canada Cup, he was matched against KLM:

The Canada Cup of Hockey Fact and Stat Book, by H.J. Anderson, page 115

These are the stats of the Canadian defensemen in the Canada Cup:

Bourque: 9 GP, 2-6-8, +3
Murphy: 8 GP, 1-6-7, +8
Coffey: 9 GP, 2-4-6, +1
Rochefor: 9 GP, 1-2-3, +3
Hartsburg: 9 GP, 0-2-2, E
Patrick: 6 GP, 0-1-1, +1
Crossman: 8GP, 0-1-1, -4

Yes, I had Rochefort in the MLD before.
This is the type of post I was looking for.

Good call on Rendezvous, he wasn't just a CC one-off like I suggested.

All I remembered about him was Kamensky's goal against in game 2, but the numbers definitely don't show him as being a poor performer.

My floor on him was a good MLD defender, but if he could hang with that Soviet team despite descriptions of being a weak skater then ATD spare seems fine.
