CCHA Rookie of the Year (1995) CCHA First All-Star Team (1998) CCHA Player of the Year (1998) NCAA West First All-American Team (1998)

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.
