Leipsic is a big time agitator but played in a high octane offensive system on a great line in Portland so it would be wise to temper expectations on the roll he will play for Nashville. He is small but plays with the Marchand attitude so we shall see how (if) his game translates to the NHL. I know people like to use Marchand as an example when they are referencing any undersized player but Leipsic actually has a similar attitude (swagger). One thing for sure is he is a competitor that will get his nose dirty and play around the net.
