That and he is gaining confidence with the puck. He's a lot more patient. Just the way he's carrying himself out there and logging those big minutes. Looks a lot more involved. Really nice to see his game being refined like that. He just keeps getting better.
Yeah, really good start to the season by Emelin. He played 27 mins last night, very impressive. Being paired with Markov has done wonders for him.

Last night he almost setup Cole on a cross ice pass after faking two defenders out the play, you are right, he is gaining more confidence.
