Matt Konan is a tall lanky player with a long reach. He is pretty quick and mobile for his size. He likes to squish forwards along the boards. Makes a good first pass.
He much rather goes for the pokecheck along open ice, his long reach and speed allows him to do this, (sometimes he over-reaches which may need to be toned down) however he has done a lot better on that during the stretch run and playoffs.)
This year he greatly improved his defensive awareness and ability to quarterback a powerplay.
He logged a lot of ice in Medicine Hat. He is also pretty good at batting away loose rebounds. I was really suprised that no one gave him an nhl spring training invite this year. I think he will need to work a bit on his upper body strength.
Sounds a little like Dan Girardi........ I can hope.
