One forward injury could necessitate a call-up since they're seemingly set to carry 13F/8D. Mitchell should be the first option and I wouldn't bet against him vs. anyone on the Bears in an open competition. Hell, if it's long-term or something at the start of camp I'd probably take Tom Wilson over anyone in Hershey. Otherwise signing Kane or Taffe is probably the conservative way to go as far as spot duty. I like Mitchell's spunk but he'll need to continue to add speed and strength to play that game effectively in the NHL.

Not sure the D ties in too much but carrying eight isn't ideal either. Then again, Orlov may not necessarily be a lock. Hillen could put his spot in jeopardy potentially.
