I don't think he has played much there since juniors. He started in the ECHL and played some C there right after juniors. His first year in the AHL the Monarchs had Azevedo, Cliche, Elkins, and Zeiler playing center, with Loktionov, Schenn, and Moller filling in at C on occasion as well that year. Last yar they had Azevedo, Cliche, Paddock, Loktionov, and Czarnik. Once guys like Paddock, and Loki were gone due to roster moves was right around when Nolan and King got their call-ups. But yeah he was almost exclusively a center until he got to the AHL. His switch to wing was likely due to the glut of natural centers that the Kings had at that time.
Andreoff (one of your new faves right?
) was another guy that switched in the AHL and was drafted as a LW but has been seeing a bit of time at center in the AHL if I'm remembering lineups correctly.
