I can't place the previously mentioned blocked shots in the game, but he did that versus Hershey as well. Girgensons did all this while hustling hard and winning battles along the boards, so I'd hardly call that invisible or inadequate for his sixth pro game. It'll take some time for him to settle in offensively, adjusting to more talented (than USHL) linemates. Patience is the key, especially with a prospect that's likely to play the next two years in the AHL anyway.
Thanks for the report on Girgs. It sounds like he is doing ok all things considered.
