It was Newbury most likely because its a fourth line spot. That's my guess.

Jean is actually not a bad option. Had he been older, he'd get the call up, but the team is probably thinking it's better for him to keep developing in Hartford a little more. Good speed, good size, good hustle, intelligent play. Doesn't have an NHL shot yet and he needs to improve his hands around the net, which is why he's in Hartford and why he's not scoring over a point per game there. He should also try to become more physical. Don't be like Boyle, Sparky, don't be like Boyle.

Give him another few months, he'll be in the NHL.
