He's playing a hell of a game so far.

Right now, he's centering Krys Barch and Butler, so he doesn't really have good offensive linemates, but he looks good on the occasional extremely long shifts that Kovalchuk takes. He's always looking for Kovalchuk when they are on the ice together.

Thursday, he got a goal when the Devils mixed up the lines and had him centering Ponikarovski and Gionta. I really like him. It's unfortunate that he's not going to get more ice time until we get healthy and can actually make his line into more of a third line by putting Zubrus or Ponikarovski there.

He's not bumping Zajac or Henrique out of the top six and Carter-Gionta-Bernier is practically set in stone. With that and Barch playing, he's playing on the de facto fourth line. Once we get another healthy body, likely Carter-Gionta-Bernier will be our fourth line and he will get more minutes.
