Ambuhl's situation seems to be pointing toward the AHL Hartford. Actually what i read was, besides the goals he scored ... he got knocked off the puck ... . Then I understand them wanting him to bulck up or to toughen up in order to be more solid on the puck.

It is true that in Switzerland, referees would not allow many usual "attacks" for North America. He must adjust to this game style.

He seems to be recognized as good ... good hands, fast, fighting spirit but needs to become stronger. That makes sense.

Under this perspective it could be that some time in AHL with a dedicated training program would be highly beneficial to him.

If he keeps willing and training ... he might become a good second liner forward in 1 or 2 years.
