It's good to see that he'll be playing somewhere where he can contribute with his big body and hard work. He's not the easiest guy to play against and he's still a work in progress, but he does know how to take on responsibility (he was just chewed up about taking that OT penalty against Slovakia that ended up costing Germany the game) and should be an IDEAL third liner for a team looking to make a playoff run.

I'm gathering that some NHL team is going to at least invite him to one of their prospect camps, if not flatout offer him an AHL/ECHL two-way contract after the season.
his combination of skill and grit is pretty interesting indeed and i really hope he gets a chance to prove himself in the AHL or maybe ECHL at first. but he needs to stay healthy for a longer period first. his style is not only damaging to his opponents unfortunately.
