Massachusetts Independent League MVP (2002) Hockey East Second All-Star Team (2005)
Missed entire 2005-06 season with post-concussion syndrome. Missed majority of 2007-08 due to sports hernia injury. Missed remainder of 2008-09 due to concussion vs. San Antonio (AHL), November 23, 2008
The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
