Signed as a free agent by Vitkovice (CzRep), September 20, 2012. Traded to Toronto by St. Louis for Carl Gunnarsson and Calgary's 4th round choice (previously acquired, St. Louis selected Ville Husso) in 2014 Entry Draft, June 28, 2014.
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.
