You can blame that on injury but I haven't seen a huge improvement from him despite the points. Most of his points are coming on the PP because he's getting more time on it now that Kadri, Frattin and others are gone.

He has nice hands and can produce given time and space but his compete level is low. He doesn't know how to give himself space 5-on-5 (like by using his body or reach) and his defensive acumen is, at best, amateur.
Carlyle doesn't have a team filled with kids either.

It is a veteran squad (AHL vets included), with Kadri.

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
