From 2010-2017 he played over in Sweden. He put up some numbers and in his last season with the Växjö Lakers in the SHL scoring 6 goals with 13 assists in just 41 games. In April 2017 his name was out there as a free-agent. He had other suitors, but the Maple Leafs inked him.

In 2017-18 he started the year with the Marlies. Late in the season, he had a four-game stint with the big club. He scored one point in four games. That showed him that he was close to playing in the best league in the world. With the Marlies, he had four goals and 18 assists in 62 games.
