    All the best Jason. As a Halifax Moosehead, he was one of the most exciting players in the Q. If you needed a goal in the last minute of a period, Jason was your man

    Smart move Jason. You had a nice career and with a young family to care for, you are making the best the decision. I'm sure you will still make a great contribution to hockey.
