After being drafted in the second round (25th overall) of the 1980 NHL draft, signed a 3-year plus one option year, two-way contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs for CAN$60,000, CAN$65,000, CAN$75,000, and CAN$70,000. The minor league salary for 1982-83 was set to CAN$30,000 and for 1983-84 to CAN$35,000. It is assumed that no minor league salary was set for 1980-81 and 1981-82 because he was still eligible for junior hockey instead of minor pro hockey. In 1980-81, he played the whole season in junior hockey, not earning a pro hockey salary.
