With the selection he and his father became the first father and son selected in the top ten in the draft's history, Darryl having been selected 8th overall in 1970. He played college hockey for the Michigan Wolverines and played on a line with Brendan Morrison during his sophomore season. He left Michigan after his sophomore season and turned pro. A series of major injuries (tore MCL and anterior cruciate ligament) prevented him from ever playing in the National Hockey League and eventually cut his career short at age 25.
