Traded to Montreal by NY Rangers with Scott Gomez and Michael Busto for Chris Higgins, Ryan McDonagh and Pavel Valentenko, June 30, 2009. Signed as a free agent by Tampa Bay, July 6, 2011. Missed majority of 2013-14 due to collar bone injury at Buffalo, October 8, 2013 and as a healthy reserve.
I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
