Now I wanna know if someone has a clue as for why he never got to play a game for the habs? He did register 83 points in his second AHL season.. Now I know he's back in Russia and may even have stopped playing, but I'd like some infos.

Thanks!
My guess is his size was the major barrier (5'8" 180 lbs). His production dropped off dramatically in Fredericton in the two seasons following his "big year." After bouncing around for a few years he has spent the last two years in Russia. Here are his career stats (sorry they're not formatted very well):
