He's very noticeable when he's on the ice, even when he's not scoring. When a defenseman is out of position, he's frequently there to fill in and win an essential puck battle and make a calm pass or clear. Dude just hasn't had much in the way of ice time or linemates. I wouldn't be surprised to see him absolutely explode next season.
Good stuff, rumrokh... feel free to continue providing Kurker updates along these lines. It's greatly appreciated.
