WCHA Second All-Star Team (2004)
Traded to Toronto by Phoenix with Phoenix's 4th (later traded to Washington Washington selected Philipp Grubauer) and 7th (later traded to Edmonton Edmonton selected Kellen Jones) round choices in 2010 Entry Draft for Lee Stempniak, March 3, 2010. Missed 2009-10 due to concussion.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
