Yeah he had a dumb penalty to start a fight this year and then got benched. The griffs went on a run after that and he hasnt got back in the line up. His skill isnt great, but his skating is actually pretty good. Hes a good forechecker, and he had no discipline problems last year just had one bad one this year at a really unfortunate time. But lets not pretend he was going to be a guy on the fast track to the NHL either, its only his second pro season

Has only fought once this year but it doesnt upset me. He played a good game last game on a line with Aubry and Grant. They were holding it in the offensive zone on the cycle the entire game.
