He'll fight too. This guy is a great show of what can happen when you put your head down and keep working to be a team guy. Lots of 16 and 17 year olds who aren't highly heralded can get buried in junior lineups and be in and out. I've seen a lot of them lose that passion and fire under their butt once that draft year passes and they didn't get their top-six time or PP time and no scouts came to talk to them. Keep working your ass off and earn your ice-time and good things will happen.
With a good attitude and hard work you can still make a name for yourself in NHL circles. Lipon basically clawed his way up the lineup year-by-year and embraced every opportunity to show what he had and has been very adaptable. Will be nice to see him rewarded with a contract.
