Prior to the season, as a rookie, signed a two-year contract with the Birmingham Bulls of the World Hockey Association for $75,000 per season plus a $75,000 signing bonus. Shortly after, the Bulls' owner voided the contract because fans expressed disgust over the signing of a black player and threatened to cancel their season tickets. He never received any money from the Bulls and elected not to sue them and start his career in the NHL instead.
