From 1984 to 1990, he captained the Flyers. After the 1986–87 season, he won the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL forward who best demonstrates defensive skill. He was a three-time 70-point scorer with the Flyers. After the 1992–93 season, he was also awarded the King Clancy Trophy, which goes to the NHL player who best demonstrates leadership both on and off the ice and who has significantly benefited his community through humanitarian efforts.
