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.
Thanks! I have seen him play in person and there is no denying the tools he has. I see him as one of those guys who can put up great numbers but wont be able to do it on his own at the NHL level. In his AHL stint has at least been playing well despite the lack of results? ie. getting good offensive opportunities, rounding out his game, bringing a consistent effort?
