He's on the first line with two veterans, Newbury and Segal. They moved Mash down even though when he was on that line, it looked really good. The reason is obviously that the team wants to develop Kreider.

He's in a good position on that line in Hartford. He's also playing on the PP and the PK.

It's not that he wasn't working hard in the NHL, it's that he wasn't sure what to do half the time, so this led to people feeling like he's not hustling. AHL is the place for him right now. Nothing wrong with that.
