He was also supposedly held to a checking role last season on the 3rd and 4th lines because of the influx of NHL talent. As we've seen with AM's checking lines, it's their job to cycle repeatedly in the corner and any "risky" play such as stickhandling or taking the puck to the net is forbidden. It may've been similar on Kopitar's SEL team. We probably won't know just how good his stickhandling really is until he lands on a team that gives him the greenlight to be a scoring machine (if he has it in him).
