I think that Jiggs (McDonald) jinxed Simpson when he announced on Sportschannel "that Simpson won the Molson Canadian Junior hockey Player of the Year and that he would have a bright future with the Islanders." Simpson never played a game in the NHL, but I think that he did lead the OHL in scoring in 1982.
