Instead, he was sent to the American Hockey League (AHL)’s Montreal Voyageurs, where he played ten games. From there, he went to the Kansas City Blues in the Central Hockey League (CHL) before finishing the season with the Seattle Totems of the now-defunct Western Hockey League. After trying out for the Canadiens again in 1971, he played for the Baltimore Clippers in the AHL and the CHL’s Oklahoma City Blazers before the Canadiens organization traded his rights to the California Golden Seals, who assigned him to their International Hockey League affiliate in Columbus. In 1972, he was drafted by the Calgary Broncos in the 17th round of the World Hockey Association (WHA)’s General Player Draft, but he did not sign with the team.
