He's a place holder until some bigger players develop to fill 4th line roles, but this could be another decent year for him since he'll hit the ground running. He had 11 goals and no assists in 26 games in the SM-liiga in Finland, which paints a perfect picture of the player he is... great shot, horrible passer with really poor vision, just focuses on hits and getting to the net all the time. Not an outstanding hitter either, but he gets around the ice quickly and doesn't take any shortcuts, which is nice.

But, he can chip in a decent number of goals for a 4th liner with his killer shot. Check him out getting a hat trick in Finland during the lockout. It's nice to think maybe he'll have a renewed confidence in his scoring abilities this season...



Edit: seems silly posting an HIFK video for the OP given his avatar, but it's more for the Oiler's fans.
