He played Junior Hockey for the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League, Minor League Hockey for the Salt Lake Golden Eagles, Atlanta Knights and Detroit Vipers of the now defunct International Hockey League as well as the Binghamton Whalers of the American Hockey League, and professional hockey for the Hartford Whalers, Ottawa Senators, Washington Capitals, and St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League.
