Actually, as PuckU alluded to, Cammalleri has taken a whole lot of faceoffs this year. He's 4th on the team in number of faceoffs taken and 1st in faceoff percentage. He usually takes the faceoff and then resumes his position on wing.
Andy Murray always had doubts about Cammalleri's ability to make it in the NHL. Now that he's proven that he belongs, it might be good to finally see what he can do at his natural position. He might not be as good at center in the NHL, but, then again, he might be better. From what I can tell, he simply plays the wing as though he never left center, anyways (he largely sticks to the center of the ice and behind the net).
