What would be wrong with keeping him as #13 if he does not make it as one of the 12 regulars?

He had two years of AHL experience, so if he only plays 30 games replacing injured role players, it would still be a good experience for him.

He had 0.8 points per game in Hartford and a full point per game in his last year in juniors. He is not a great fighter, but he can hold his own and he can hit too. And if he became more confident, I believe his ability, that stuff that got him points in the AHL and juniors, will show.

I think the kid can be either a fourth liner or a 13th forward this year. Neither is a tremendously demanding job on the team.
