Traded to Carolina by San Jose for future considerations, February 18, 2011. Missed majority of 2010-11 due to upper-body injury and as a healthy reserve. Signed as a free agent by Vancouver, July 5, 2012. Re-assigned to Worcester (AHL) by Vancouver, March 22, 2013. Signed as a free agent by Solna (Sweden), July 28, 2013. Signed as a free agent by Nurnberg (Germany), April 24, 2014.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
