His name appears on Section M of the Vimy Memorial, Part V.

He scored 63 goals in 22 Stanley Cup games between 1903 and 1906. He scored 5 goals on 7 separate occasions, 8 against Montreal on March 3rd, 1906 and 14 against Dawson City on January 16, 1905. All of this despite the loss of one eye prior to his playing days with Ottawa. (Drolet 9)
