In the [[2008 NCAA Men's Division I Ice Hockey Tournament|2008 Frozen Four]] he scored 5 goals in the final two games, leading his team to the championship, and was named the tournament's most outstanding player.<ref>{{cite news|last=Chambers|first=Mike|title=Boston College wins title|url=http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_8905822|publisher=''[[The Denver Post]]''|date=April 13, 2008|accessdate=2008-05-06}}</ref> He was also a finalist for the [[Hobey Baker Award]] in the same 2007–08 season.<ref>{{cite news|last=Marrapese-Burrell|first=Nancy|coauthors=Barbara Matson|title=Porter, not Gerbe, wins Hobey Baker|url=http://www.boston.com/sports/articles/2008/04/12/porter_not_gerbe_wins_hobey_baker/|publisher=''[[The Boston Globe]]''|date=April 12, 2008|accessdate=2008-05-06}}</ref>

Despite his diminutive size at roughly 5 foot 5&nbsp;inches, he makes up for it off the ice with his strong build. On the ice he is known for his skating ability and scoring touch as evident with 68 points in 43 games in his last year with Boston College. During his tenure with the [[Buffalo Sabres]], the local fans have begun to call him the "Tasmanian Devil" of the Buffalo Sabres, a reference to his smaller size, but rough style of play. He has also been called, "The Gerbil," by local fans in reference to a petting confrontation with [[Daniel Carcillo]] of the [[Philadelphia Flyers]] during the 2011 [[NHL]] playoffs.
