He played several seasons in Colorado and won the Stanley Cup with them in 2001. In 2003 he signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers, but when that team decided to dump most of its most expensive players near the end of that season he was sent to the Ottawa Senators for Karel Rachunek and prospect Alexandre Giroux.
