Didn't see that game, but usually yes, they are physical penalties. Coach was saying in an interview the other day that he feels he gets penalized for his size a lot. I can't really recall seeing him ever get a tripping or hooking penalty for being out hustled. A lot of them are stupid hit from behind or after the whistle penalties though. Or interference penalty like last night. Which are a common theme with Merrimack for some reason.

Last night he played in the 4-2 win finishing the home and home series. Had two monstrous hits. Northeastern was definitely avoiding him and attacking his pairing's side. Both goals were in the first period on the other side of the ice where it is difficult to see from the student section, but it did not look like he was on the ice for either. Overall, he was solid on D and fairly unnoticeable on offense. Had one slapshot that was not even close to the net. Will be interesting to see how he does offensively this year as our defense is taking over offensively. The game winner was by our captain Jordan Heywood who is second on the team in goals. So he will definitely have chances offensively this year and it will be interesting to see if he can capitalize. Next week is BU, so Bigos will definitely need a big game. They are only a point ahead of BU in the hockey east standings. Still early on in the season, but an important game. Could put them on the national ranks.
