QMJHL Second All-Star Team (2009)
Traded to Calgary by Buffalo with Chris Butler for Robyn Regehr, Ales Kotalik and Calgary's 2nd round choice (Jake McCabe) in 2012 Entry Draft, June 25, 2011.
This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
