Considering the major knock against him when he was drafted was his skating, this is the most encouraging thing I've heard all season.
And I've noticed that with his offense, he can get multi-point games but it seems like his line is hardly involved in the scoring in the games where the Oil Kings go off for 5-7 goals. Is it something he's doing wrong? Or Lazar? Or is it just the matchups other teams are playing against them?
