No he played 70 regular season games and 19 playoff games that year. I'm guessing he was a bit of a project. Not filled out. Undeveloped offensive game.

A very strong skater both forward and backward… smooth powerful stride… very good agility and mobility… confident in his skating ability and plays a very tight gap… solid defensive player who seldom joins the rush… hard and accurate first pass… sees the ice well… very poised and doesn’t panic with the puck… has a quick accurate wrist shot from the point along with a heavy slap shot… used on the penalty kill and effective when given the opportunity on the power play… an aggressive hard-nosed player who excels in a physical contest… competes hard and wins most battles for loose pucks in the defensive zone… makes opposing forwards pay a price for standing in front of his net.
