Joel Champagne
The Bears just signed Joel Champagne to a contract for 2012-13. Can anyone who's seen hm play give me a hint of what to expect?

He plays a good energy game and is solid defensively with a big hit here and there, but overall not a memerable or important player

The 22 year old left-handed center had 6 goals and 6 assists for the Milwaukee Admirals last season in 55 AHL games. It was his first season in pro hockey. He was a 5th round pick for Toronto. He came from the Quebec Major Junior HL.

He needs to use his size, 6'4" 214 pounds. He could improve on faceoffs and throw more hits. He hammered the Chicago Wolves in a couple of games last season with neutral zone hits. If he could do that every game, other teams would be looking around for him on the ice. I wouldn't be surprised to see him with 10 G and 10 A next year, even as a 3rd or 4th line center.
