Traded to Florida by Tampa Bay for Florida's 7th round choice (Marek Priechodsky) in 2000 Entry Draft, June 1, 2000. Loaned to Edmonton (AHL) by Florida (San Antonio-AHL), January 3, 2005. Signed as a free agent by Jokerit Helsinki (Finland), October 3, 2005. Signed as a free agent by Mora (Sweden), November 11, 2005.
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.
