    He wasn't wearing a seat belt, which played a contributing factor in his eventual death.
    His number 21 he wore with the Penguins wasn't officially retired by the team until 2001, despite the fact it was out of circulation for 30 years.
    He was one of the first stars in the history of the Penguins franchise.
    He was determined to spend his entire career playing for the Penguins.
    He was the second player in franchise history to have his number retired.
