Happy to hear St-Denis is getting a shot. He was awesome in camp (go back and check the threads if you don't believe me). He was my #1 from Hamilton, even if I'm a huge Joe Stejskal fan. I also like Alex Henry a lot. At the same time, St-Denis is the closest guy to NHL caliber we have in the AHL and he could be a useful NHL guy at some point in his career.

I'm not worried having him in the line-up at all.

As for people calling him the "offensive-type", that's not really true. He's more of a Josh Gorges type player than a Diaz/Weber. He won't get beat very easily. He has a really good first pass too. He's not physical at all though.

Anyone know his story? Did he move at a young age?

We make a huge deal out of Torrey Mitchell from the Sharks because he's from Greenfield Park, so it seems weird I've never heard of St-Denis.
If Google Maps is right, he played Minor Hockey only an hour away from you (Drummondville) for 5-years.
