He started off in the AHL very poorly during the lockout. He broke camp with the big club, where he struggled to assert himself. Found himself in Torts' doghouse to some degree. Was injured, a healthy scratch, would see few minutes, and so on. Did nothing to force the team's hand in keeping him up, IMO. The skills are evident, but he's yet to put it together this year. He went back down a couple weeks ago, and immediately posted four goals in three games. Since then he's vanished, along with the rest of his teammates.
