A lefty, this is a balanced addition to Noreau and Ceresniak, who are righties.

I picked and wanted Tanner Pearson a LW with shooting skills who went to the Kings. But I won't complain if this was, overall, the smartest choice to make.

I'm a bit confused about that as well.

One quote:

"His shot is average at best and needs to be powered up."

And another:

"He has a heavy, accurate slapshot that is a weapon from the point."

So which is it?
