10 points in his last 12 games. 7 in his last 6. By all accounts from people who follow the Whale regularly, the guy has been on a different level since getting benched a few weeks ago. Also, his best asset is his one-timer and PP skills, two things that the roster lacks. Not that surprising a call-up to me at all. He's on a hot streak, NYR is depleted and his strengths are the team's weaknesses. If he happens to be ready for this level of hockey, now is the best time to find out.
