Mittens scores similarly to Slater, but can be slotted in more roles. Mittens can slot in on the PP if there is an injury and he is actually an effective penalty killer too. He is a very solid option as a 7th to 13th forward IMO.
I agree 100%. I think Mittens is criminally underrated due to his slow start to the season.

If i recall the research i did correctly, over the last 25 games he was our highest scoring bottom 6 player. I was actually really looking forward to him playing as i think with the new depth, having a line of Mittens, Slater and +1 would be a VERY good 4th line.
