Originally a New Jersey Devils‘ 5th round pick in the 2006 draft (#148 overall), he spent the first five years of his pro career in their system, mostly playing games for Lowell Devils with one campaign with Albany Devils, when they moved before he was let go as an unrestricted free agent.
It was almost a bit ironic that he skated 18 NHL games in 2010/2011 before being released (0 points, -4 rating).
Maybe the thought was they didn’t want to go to arbitration or negotiate a new deal.
At 31-years old, he has settled nicely into a place he’s comfortable and may just continue with the squad until he’s ready to return to Sherbrook, QC.

He played 18 games without scoring but must have shown them something to last that long on a team that is troubled at best.
