He was last with the team on a trade at the 2011/2012 deadline and was sent to affiliate Providence Bruins for the remainder of the calendar.
After signing a 2-year contract to remain, he assume starting net minder duties in the AHL, while only appearing in one big league game.
He also played his junior hockey with the squad.
His next stop would take him to Carolina Hurricanes on a one-year deal and he played in a career high 36 games, then receive a two-year extension to stay put but was traded to Anaheim Ducks for the second season of the contract, where he was caught in a glut of starting net minders and spent all but 9 games with affiliate San Diego Gulls.
The 30-year old should split duties nicely on his second tour with the black & gold and give the team confidence in their “new” backstop.
