Between 2007 and 2010, he saw action in 164 AHL games for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, interrupted by a stint with ECHL side Utah Grizzlies.[1] He had signed with the New York Islanders in May 2008, who were affiliated with the Sound Tigers.[2]

He signed with the Grizzlies Wolfsburg of the German top flight Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) for the 2010–11 season. Beginning in 2013, he served as team captain. Despite offers from other clubs over the years, Haskins opted to remain with the Grizzlies and on February 24, 2016, he put pen to paper on a new deal that would keep him in Wolfsburg until 2020.[3]

On March 26, 2018, he announced his immediate retirement from his professional playing career due to multiple concussions which he had suffered throughout his playing days.[4] He accepted a position to remain within the Grizzlys Wolfsburg organization as a scout.
