He continued to play extremely well, being named the WHA Most Valuable Player in 1973 and 1975, then won the Avco Cup with the Jets in 1976, 1978 and 1979. He wanted to retire after 1979 season as injuries began to affect his performance, but after the NHL and WHA merged he decided to stay in Winnipeg for one more season. He played in only 18 games before he was traded to the Hartford Whalers, and finished the 1979-1980 season with nine games for the Whalers after which he decided to retire. He tried to make a comeback as a New York Ranger, but without success; he was 42 at the time of his tryouts with the Rangers.
