Traded to Philadelphia by Los Angeles with Ned Lukacevic for Denis Gauthier and Philadelphia's 2nd round choice (later traded to Minnesota Minnesota selected Jason Zucker) in 2010 Entry Draft, July 1, 2008. Missed majority of 2008-09 due to shoulder injury. Traded to Nashville by Philadelphia for future considerations, September 18, 2009.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
