In 2010/2011 he had 17 goals and 37 points. In 2011/2012 he took a step back with 9 goals and 24 points but this year again he is producing at around the same pace as two seasons ago. He's 27 years old, 6'4 230, 15th in hits for LW'rs (88).. Our team has enough skilled forwards that we can afford someone like this who is maybe more of a 3rd liner than a top 6 player. He fits a huge need for a cheaper option, IMO.

Basically no PP or PK time

Good numbers for TOI, but I question his ability to be a 2nd liner playing 15-17 minutes. I suppose if he stays off the special teams he could be on a 2nd line with Gagner & Yakupov
