He's slipped once or twice trying to get back in position after an odd bounce of the boards, but it hasn't cost him. With Wellar and Fleming called up to Hershey we will see how he does with a couple of waiver wire pickups replacing them on defense. I expect he will face a few more shots per game, at least until we get some d-men back down.
You guys are getting Wellar back. He was assigned today. Flemming should be back down soon as Stafford and P. McNeil started skating full contact today. If Flemming plays well maybe he stays and another D Man gets reassigned.

It's glad to hear about Grubauer. His only game in Hershey this year he looked very impressive for never playing an AHL game. I was hoping he would be here this year as the starter but unfortunately the lockout happened. Boy has Washington done a great job of supplying good young goalies for Hershey. Varlamov for a bit, Neuvirth and his 2 Calder Cups, Holtby now, Grubauer in the near future, plus Kostenko and Soberg down the road.
