He made his NHL debut during the 2011-12 season, tallying 3-5-8 and 20 penalty minutes in 34 games with Buffalo. He missed the majority of the 2012-13 campaign due to a knee injury.

The Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan native spent three seasons as Michigan State University from 2007-10. He registered 29-41-70 and 111 penalty minutes in 100 games as a Spartan, including a team-leading 20-22-42 and 50 penalty minutes in 37 games in 2009-10 to earn CCHA Second Team All-Star honors. Prior to enrolling at MSU, he played two seasons with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League from 2005-07.
