QMJHL Second All-Star Team (2005, 2006)
Traded to NY Rangers by Atlanta for Pascal Dupuis and NY Rangers' 3rd round choice (later traded to Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh selected Robert Bortuzzo) in 2007 Entry Draft, February 27, 2007. Traded to Phoenix by NY Rangers for Pittsburgh's 3rd round choice (previously acquired, NY Rangers selected Tomas Kundratek) in 2008 Entry Draft, June 21, 2008.
I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
