Unless he gets a run of luck where pucks bounce in off his shin guard or he gets tap ins he will never score 10 goals again. He is a brutal offensive player. But that's not his role and Torts needs to move him to the 4th line where he belongs so he can expect offensive production from his entire top 9 forwards.
Oh, please. Talk about extreme exaggeration. A "brutal" offensive player does not score 22 goals playing 15 minutes a night. He's nothing special, but for a bottom-6 player, his offensive game is plenty adequate. It's simply a matter of balancing statistics. He has 70 SOG, and has 2 goals. It's not as if he doesn't take shots, he gets chances. This year, unfortunately, he's not getting ANY puck luck. Couple of good bounces, and he has 6/7 goals right now.
