Transferred to Colorado after Quebec franchise relocated, June 21, 1995. Rights traded to Chicago by Colorado for Chicago's 2nd round choice (Phillippe Sauve) in 1998 Entry Draft, July 10, 1996. Traded to Pittsburgh by Chicago for Greg Johnson, October 27, 1997. Missed majority of 1998-99 due to knee injury vs. Houston (IHL), October 16, 1998.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
