Pando had consistently been one of the hardest working players for the Devils during the time he's been with the team.
He had played some excellent defense in his tenure, battling along the boards, killing penalties, giving defensemen fits
with his forecheck, and generally doing the little things on the ice.
Because of this, people would forget that he was a proficient scorer at Boston University. That shows that he learned
quickly to do whatever it took for the team in order to stay on it. Even if it meant reinventing himself.
That scoring touch he had started to resurface in 07-08 and was well on his way to having a career year offensively, but
a pelvic injury took him out of the lineup for an extended period, and he didn't quite get back in the offensive flow.
His defensive play didn't suffer, though, when he returned. It hardly ever did.
That did seem to change over his last two seasons with the team, however. Thus, he was slowly phased out of the
regular lineup, and ultimately had his contract bought out, which would open the door for him to join the Springfield
Falcons for a handful of games. (The year with the Islanders come the following season.)
He did get to play with his hometown Bruins before he retired, and afterwards, worked for their developmental staff
for two seasons. He would get promoted to his current post of assistant coach during the summer of 2016.
