Signed as a free agent by Calgary, July 1, 2007. Traded to Colorado by Calgary with Alex Tanguay for David Jones and Shane O'Brien, June 27, 2013.
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.
