Picked 33rd overall from the Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings by the Buffalo Sabres in the second round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, he never played in the National Hockey League, spending his entire career in the minor leagues.

He played with the Americans for four seasons before the Boston Bruins signed him as a free agent and assigned him to their AHL team, the Providence Bruins.
