He's already done the AHL playoff thing anyway.
If AV continues to run the bottom 6 the same way he did during the win against the Sharks then Hodgson would have a good experience playing on the 4th line.
6 min a night with 2 plugs isn't great for him obviously, but 10 to 12 mpg with Hansen and then either Glass or Torres (as well as some power play time) would be an excellent way to get a feel for the NHL game.
Not to mention he would likely outplay the dreg we have had centering the 4th line to this point.
