Korpikoski got some time on the PK last season so maybe thats why he is coming here.
Korpedo was first heralded as a 2 way prospect with very good offensive upside. But when most of his time is on the PK or as a shut down line, not a ton of offense can be generated. Korpikoski has all the tools but if he some how ends up with 3rd MAYBE 2nd line duties on the Yotes, then obviously I would expect to see his numbers to go up.
