Missed majority of 1999-2000 due to shoulder injury vs. NY Rangers, October 30, 1999. Missed majority of 2001-02 due to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, September 6, 2001. Signed as a free agent by TPS Turku (Finland), October 21, 2004. Signed as a free agent by Anaheim, July 8, 2009.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
