None of us Ducks fans knew much of anything about him and the reaction to the trade was uniformally "meh". But he really was a pleasant surprise. He can play all 3 forward positions, can play 3rd line shutdown role or a 4th line energy role. Plays with a lot of grit, defends teammates and is a very entertaining fighter, willing to take one to give one. He's also just 24 and doesn't have a lot of NHL experience so we're hoping he can improve a bit still making him a staple on our bottom-6 for a while.

Though it is a lot easier to be satisfied with the guy when you get him for a 4th instead of drafting him in the 1st.
