With Girginsons at center he could make a Selke trophy candidate someday. He is like a Ryan Kesler type of player.
Since Grigorenko, Ennis, and Hodson are the Sabres top 3 centers, I think the Sabres want to use him at wing. I'm guessing that The Sabres will want to use his grit and defensive abilities to pair up with the offensively skilled Grigorenko and Armia. They may also want him on a line with Grigorenko because Grigorenko is Russian and Gerginsons is Latvian (basically Russian) for chemistry purposes.
You can also say that Ruff generally doesn't know what the best position for players are and that's why he does so much line juggling.
