I would predict 3-4 fights of his this year from him. He's not a bad fighter, he just doesn't do it much.
But still you add him to the list of Greene, Mitchell, Richards, Clifford, Fraser, and Nolan who are all guys that fight when they have to and the only issue becomes fighting the big heavyweight enforcers in staged fights. Which as I pointed out in my previous post, (and is somethig you still won't acknowledge) the Kings don't need to dress an enforcer everynight and can't be locked into having their opponent dictate matchups. Westgarth is nice to have around as an option if needed, but teams do fine for themselves without enforcers too. Westie played 25 games this past year and had I think a grand total of 3 fights, that's not a lot of "enforcing..."
