Contract in Canadian currency: $4,500. Signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs: CAN$6,000 in the NHL; CAN$4,000 in the AHL; CAN$3,500 in the Quebec Hockey League or Western Hockey League. Also received a CAN$1,000 signing bonus. He played 15 games in the Quebec Hockey League and what appears to be about 20 games in the Ontario Hockey Association Senior A. Although the Ontario Hockey Association Senior A was not part of the contract, we assume that he earned a similar salary as he was in the Quebec league. He retired from pro hockey after the season.
