He was in and out of the lineup appearing in only 30 games posting no goals and 11 assists with a -3 rating.
The 6’3″ 205 lbs. blue liner started his pro career with minor league affiliate Hamilton Bulldogs putting up pretty amazing numbers: 5 goals, 25 assists (team best) and a +22 plus/minus (league best as a rookie).
He also played in a pair of NHL games in his first year.
Unfortunately the big man on d missed his entire sophomore season after surgery to repair a shoulder injury suffered in preseason play.
That didn’t deter the parent club from offering him a one-year extension.
He continued his play with the farm team but seemed to be a small step off his game coming back from missing time on ice.
In 27 games he tossed in another 5 tallies and 6 helpers.
At the end of 2012/2013 he was loaned to Charlotte Checkers for what turned out to be only a single game.
The 27-year old was invited to Oklahoma City Barons training camp but ultimately released before 2014/2015 began.
No doubt if he’s able to regain his former game form, he’ll be in queue for a call-up.
