To start his pro career he signed a two-year entry level deal, which included his final season of college hockey at University Of Minnesota-Duluth, with Anaheim Ducks and was reassigned to then minor league affiliate Syracuse Crunch, but was traded only a couple months into his rookie campaign to Philadelphia Flyers‘ system.
This represented his first tour of duty with the Phantoms, where he put up decent numbers (7-14-21) with a +13 rating.
Heading into the off season he was part of his second trade in less than a year that sent him to Los Angeles Kings‘ organization but never laced up the skates, as he was left unqualified heading into his sophomore season.
He was with the club putting up better than a point-per-game numbers and recalled to Rochester Americans for a short stint before being returned at the start of the new year.
Six weeks later Adirondack came back around hoping to re-employ the battler with an spc for the balance of the regular season.
Heading into his third year, he signed with the team again, playing in all 76 games.
He was extended once again and earned an invite to the Flyers‘ training camp before being sent back down to start the current campaign.
The 25-year old plays a hard-skating, battler style of game that should either lead him to continue where he is or get adopted elsewhere.
