I haven't kept up with the Marlies, so I didn't know what to expect from him on the 1st pairing, but he did not look out of place at all. I thought he was composed and made some smart plays. I liked him on the PP, he got a lot of shots through, even if they were a little off target, and used guys like Mac for deflections more than once which was nice. Again, it's only 1 game, against the Habs of all teams, so I'd like to see some more of him.

How many minutes does he play for the Marlies? If he's not used to the big minutes, it could be a sign that RC is using him as much as possible early on, so the other D can ease into the game, and then when Gardiner comes back he will be sent down. If he keeps playing like this, though...
