The deal saw Huffman traded to the Quebec Nordiques, along with Peter Forsberg, Mike Ricci, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Steve Duchesne, a first-round pick in the 1993 and 1994 Drafts and $15,000,000 for Lindros, who refused to play for the Nordiques.
He later played for the Ottawa Senators before returning to Philadelphia in a trade in 1996. In total, Huffman played 401 regular season games, scoring 37 goals and 108 assists for 145 points and collecting 361 penalty minutes.
Since the 2016–17 season, Huffman has served as an assistant coach for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League under Scott Gordon. In the 2018–19 season, Huffman was promoted to interim head coach after Gordon departed for the interim head coaching position with the Philadelphia Flyers. Upon Gordon's return to the Phantoms at the end of the season, Huffman resumed his duties as an assistant coach.
