I wouldn't expect him to stick there regularly, but we don't have too many options in terms of top 6 wingers now that Kane plays center.
Our top two left wings are currently Brunette and Carcillo. Neither have the skill or creativity most people associate with top six wingers. He's a better skating dirty goal scorer. Doesn't have Brunette's hands, but his ability to keep up 5v5 is worth a whole lot more.
