He served as team manager with Team Canada at the Spengler Cup in 2018-19 as well as in 2019-20 on the championship squad, before serving in the same role with Team Canada at the World Junior Championship this season, where he earned silver with the U20.

He was a fourth round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2006 NHL Draft.
