His most recent season in Montreal saw him collect a 10-8-3 record with a 2.51 goals against average and .909 save percentage. Budaj, a native of Banská Bystrica, Slovakia, reached his career-high in games played and wins with the Colorado Avalanche in 2006-07 when he had a 31-16-6 record over 57 games played. Budaj was originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round, 63rd overall, of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
