He played 935 games in the NHL with the Canadiens, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Atlanta Trashers, the Winnipeg Jets, the Carolina Hurricanes, the Pittsburgh Penguinsand the Leafs, registering 265 points. He added 8 points in 25 playoff games. Last spring, Hainsey helped the Penguins to win the Stanley Cup. It was the first time of his career that Hainsey was playing playoff hockey.
He joined the Maple Leafs as a free agent last summer, signing a two-year contract for a total amount of $6M.
