Fogarty is interesting. The book on him at the time he was drafted was that he was a big, skilled, offensively-oriented player who would need to improve his two-way game. During the two years since he was drafted, he has seen drastic improvement on the defensive side of the puck, to the point where he now looks like a defensively-oriented center. It was as if the defensive improvement came at the expense of his offense.

Now, at Notre Dame he was asked to play primarily a defensive role, and all indications are that he performed well in that role. This season, he's likely to see increased ice time in offensive situations and be asked to shoulder more of the offensive burden. Can he do that? Two years ago, everyone would have expected the offense to be more of a given and the defense to be the question mark. This year will be big for him developmentally.


It's just pain.
