Traded to Columbus by NY Islanders for Eric Boguniecki, October 25, 2006. Signed as a free agent by Phoenix, July 23, 2007. Signed as a free agent by Dusseldorf (Germany), July 31, 2008. Signed as a free agent by Assat Pori (Finland), November 18, 2010.
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.
