Played in NHL All-Star Game (2003, 2004)

Traded to Los Angeles by Pittsburgh for Ed Olczyk, March 18, 1997. Traded to Boston by Los Angeles with Jozef Stumpel for Jason Allison and Mikko Eloranta, October 24, 2001.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
