Boyes got hurt in the Boston game and Kaleta couldn't go due to a LBI. This is them having to reach farther down into the farm for a body. It also allows them to give him a reward recall due to how he's played with the Amerks and give him a taste of what it takes at this level. Putting him into the Bruins game would have sent a couple of mixed messages -- namely that he has to pick up after the supposedly grown men who put the team into the position they did with the Miller situation and to the team that someone else is coming to bail their poggybait tails out since they can't man up for themselves.

He's not a showcase, he's here because they're missing Ennis, McCormick, Boyes, and Kaleta up front and have already taken Tropp, Adam and Ellis out of what was thought to be the Amerks depth chart at the start of the year. They simply need an extra forward.
