Last guy off ice.

Fist bumps when they're leaving the locker room after intermission.

Aside from that I guess I'm joining the camp that wonders what he's doing here for sure. At the STH deal last Sunday Forslund offered some line about, "He makes a difference just being on the bench," or some such about an implied psychological advantage Westgarth brings.

But what kind of a psychological advantage are you really feeling when you're exchanging a few bombs with Lucic and you catch #8 out of the corner of your eye sitting on the bench, tapping his stick on the boards?
