I like Gigensons, and I'm about the most critical fan out there. He plays a 3rd line checking/PK type of role and does it well. The fact that he looks pretty solid in a locked out AHL at 18 years old seems like it bodes well for him and the organization.
Except he DOESN'T kill penalties. I have watched/attended almost every game this year- I haven't seen much from him. When the team is fully healthy HE will be the one on the top 3 lines taking up the spot of the much needed AHL Veteran you are always complaining we don't have. You can't have it both ways.
A year or 2 in juniors or college would have helped him develop his gam so it was AHL ready. I don't see him developing much getting 8 minutes a night here.
