ECAC All-Rookie Team (2005)
Missed majority of 2008-09 due to training camp leg injury, September 18, 2008. Signed as a free agent by Minnesota, July 1, 2012.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
