Playing career

Upshall played junior hockey with the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League (WHL) from 2000 until 2003. His best season was 2000-01 when he scored 42 goals and 87 points. He was selected in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL) in the first round, sixth overall. He played one final season of junior in 2002–03, joining the Predators after the end of the junior season to make his NHL debut.

He then played three seasons in the minors with the Milwaukee Admirals, with some time with the Predators. In 2006–07, another season split between the Admirals and Predators, he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in February 2007 as part of a blockbuster trade for Peter Forsberg. The following season, he became a full-time NHL player with the Flyers. The 2007–08 season was his only full season with the Flyers. He was traded at the trade deadline in the 2008–09 season to the Phoenix Coyotes along with a 2011 draft pick for Daniel Carcillo. Upshall scored a goal against the Bruins in his final game with the Flyers, and then tallied a power play goal in his first game in a Coyotes uniform. The goal was shown to Flyers fans during their first game without Upshall during an intermission and it was met with loud cheers and applause. He went on to score 8 goals and 5 assists in 19 games with the Coyotes.

Upshall also played for Team Canada in the 2009 World Championship in Switzerland.
