And yes, I drafted him in my hockey pool & that's the main reason I am asking. I really think he has the potential to be great one.
Rico has had an excellent preseason, giving up 4 goals in 4 games played. His stickhandling can get him into some serious trouble, as it has done in the past, but it's a good asset to have around. He can be an "3rd defenseman" for them. If can keep his stickhandling in check to a point and keep his head straight, he could have an excellent year. But with this being his first full NHL season, I would expect him to go the way of having a record of a few games above .500.
