During the tournament, Adam led all defensemen with 10 points, and tied for the lead among defensemen with 3 goals and 7 assists.
His 10 points ranked 6th among all players in the tournament and his 7 assists ranked 4th. He was named as one of the defensemen to the tournament all star team and as one of Team USA's 3 top players.
Adam made his NHL debut on November 20, 2014 and scored his first NHL goal on his first shot against Jonas Hiller of the Calgary Flames. On January 29, 2015, the Blackhawks traded him to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Gustav Forsling.
On July 28, 2015, Adam (along with Nick Bonino and a 2nd round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft) were traded from the Canucks to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Brandon Sutter and a 3rd round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
Adam made the Penguins roster to open the 2015–16 season. He posted 1 assist in 9 games with Pittsburgh before he was again included in a trade, alongside David Perron to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Carl Hagelin on January 16, 2016.
Adam was put on waivers and claimed by the Edmonton Oilers two weeks later on January 27, 2016, marking the fifth organization he would join within the year, though he never actually played for the Anaheim Ducks organization.
