    He’s 28 and was playing in the A, so don’t get too excited.. but I hope he can surprise us like Potulny or Stone.

    Looks like a solid grinder. Hopefully a good soldier that doesn’t make a difference in our Fall for Hall.

    I wouldn’t bank on him making too much of a difference, especially offensively. Yeah he puts up decent AHL numbers but his only NHL action seen was in Pittsburgh where he put up 2 points in 15 games and 3 in 20 on 2 separate call ups…

    Good call up, will keep the lights on and not matter if he takes an injury. Just what we need to close out this nightmare of a season.

    I’ve been impressed with his game tonight. Looks like a decent prospect.

  6. Racki says:

    At this point I’m not sure we can call him a prospect (he’s 28). But good to hear he played well.

  7. chucker says:

    Yeah, not really a prospect, but new to us. He looks alright to me for a filler and farm hand. He looked like he fit in.
