ColHL First All-Star Team (1993)
Traded to Buffalo by Los Angeles for Buffalo's 8th round choice (Dan Welch) in 2000 Entry Draft, January 24, 2000. Missed majority of 2000-01 due to knee injury vs. Edmonton, October 13, 2000.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
