Traded to Buffalo by NY Islanders with Taylor Pyatt for Michael Peca, June 24, 2001. Missed entire 2003-04 due to head injury in pre-season vs. Chicago, October 2, 2003. Signed as a free agent by Langnau (Swiss), October 10, 2004. Missed majority of 2006-07 due to head injury in playoff game vs. Ottawa, May 8, 2006. Signed as a free agent by Toronto, July 2, 2011.
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.
