He played in one game for the Cats in 2012 while spending 35 games with the Rampage after being acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes (with Mattias Lindstrom) in exchange for A.J. Jenks and Evgeni Dadonov.

The Hobey Baker winner began his NHL career in 2009-10 after four seasons at Boston College.
