"For the past five seasons, JC has been a mainstay and iron man at center for us," Executive Vice President and GM Andrew Berry said. "He came to our organization at a time of instability and was one of the key veterans that helped turn the tide over the past several years. His leadership — both within the locker room and the field — will be missed. We wish JC well as he continues his career."
