I would be very surprised if Tesink goes unsigned. The kid's an absolute spark plug and is always giving 100%. I see him as having bottom-6 energy line potential in the NHL. I'd also say that he is more offensively skilled than his numbers the previous two seasons would suggest. The Sea Dogs were absolutely loaded offensively those 2 years so he has mainly been used in defensive/checking/energy roles while not getting much of any PP time. Watch the kid play and you'll see why he's a fan favorite. I think it will take him a few years in the minors to round out his game but I see him as having the potential to have a similar impact in the NHL as Sobotka.
