Traded to Phoenix by Florida for Steve Reinprecht, June 19, 2009. Signed as a free agent by Calgary, July 20, 2010. Re-assigned to Farjestad (Sweden) by Calgary (Abbotsford-AHL), December 5, 2011. Signed as a free agent by Schwenningen (German-2), August 10, 2012.
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.
