He played center in junior and has occasionally filled in when the injury bug has hit in Hamilton. The problem is that he is a poor skater and just can't play the position........this is why he has been used primarily as a winger for his entire pro career.

Plenty of players who were centers as juniors never end up playing that position as a pro. Even Andrei Markov played center before he was drafted
