He's not going to score a ton of goals, although I do think if he played for another team he could pot 20.

With the Flyers he'll be a 3rd/4th line winger. Good size, good skater, excellent defensively and a great penalty killer.

Last year he never looked to score, until the very end of the year when he seemed to gain some confidence. Once he started looking to shoot the puck more he scored 5 of his 8 goals in the last 9 games of the year.

Hitchcock loves him, and compares him to Lehtinen. He's not going to be that good offensively, but I think if he played for the Wild (Lemaire would love him) you could see 18-20 goals and 40 points.
