He was originally a Calgary Flames‘ 4th round pick in the 2008 draft (#108 overall) but was never signed.
To start his rookie season he eventually signed a two-way deal with Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
Through 17 AHL games he scored 4 goals and 2 assists with a +5 rating but to failed to stick on the young squad and was eventually sent back down a couple of months later.
He was later loaned to South Carolina Stingrays to play out the season and almost ironically started to regain his scoring touch, putting in 7 goals and 2 assists in 23 games.
It’s almost surprising that the 24-year old decided to take his game to another country but maybe a fresh start is what he needs to move up the ranks.
He was rumored to have inked a deal with Orlando Solar Bears but decided to jump ship.
