Traded to Philadelphia by Columbus for Michael Leighton and Philadelphia's 3rd round choice in 2015 Entry Draft, April 3, 2013.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
