Draft

He was drafted in the second round, 38th overall, by the New York Islanders in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.

Career

After playing four seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Kamloops Blazers, and playing for the victorious Canadian team at the 1996 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, Holland made his professional debut in the American Hockey League with the Kentucky Thoroughblades during the 1996–97 season. During the same season, he made his NHL debut with the Islanders, appearing in four games.

During the 1997–98 season, Holland was traded along with Paul Kruse to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Jason Dawe. After three-plus seasons with the Sabres organization, mostly spent in the AHL with the Rochester Americans, Holland joined the Los Angeles Kings. Once again, most of Holland's time with the organization was spent with their AHL affiliate, in this case the Manchester Monarchs. Holland did spend the entire 2003–04 season with the Kings, appearing in 52 games and tallying six points.

Holland spent the 2005–06 season with ERC Ingolstadt of Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga, and remained with the team for the 2006–07 season. On 21 April 2009 signed an contract with Düsseldorfer EG Metro Stars and will play for the team over two years.

International

Holland was chosen to German national team for 2008 World Championships and he played games against Finland and Slovakia. Germany beat Slovakia 4–2, before it was found that Holland was ineligible to play for Germany, because he had played only three seasons in Germany, while IIHF rules state that player who has represented another country (as Holland did in 1996) might change nationality after playing four seasons in the country. German victory was in jeopardy for a short time, but finally Germany was allowed to keep points, while Holland was suspended from the tournament.
