Traded to Colorado by Washington with Washington's 1st (Scott Parker) and 4th (later traded back to Washington Washington selected Krys Barch) in 1998 Entry Draft for Curtis Leschyshyn and Chris Simon, November 2, 1996. Missed remainder of 1996-97 and majority of 1997-98 due to knee injury vs. Chicago, May 13, 1996. Traded to Philadelphia by Colorado for Shjon Podein, November 12, 1998. Officially announced retirement, November 21, 2000.
I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
