    Like his older brother Doug, he was deemed too small to crack the Boston Bruins roster.
    He developed hypochondria after he was told he had a heart condition by a Montreal Canadiens team doctor, when he attempted a tryout with the team.
    He admitted he carried enough prescription drugs on him, that he considered himself a 'walking drug store.'
    He was initially reluctant to leave Chicago upon being traded by the Black Hawks.
    He was nicknamed 'The Dipsy Doodle Dandy from Delisle.'
    He helped out on the family farm during the off-seasons.
    He was a member of three Stanley Cup championship teams in Toronto.
    He, and Doug succesful lobbied the Black Hawks management to sign their older brother, Reg to a contract.
    He, along with his brothers made NHL history by being the first brothers to be entirely credited with a single scoring play.
    He participated in the first All-Star Game in NHL history (October 13, 1947).
