Not certain but I believe he started his rookie year on the 4th line behind Forsy, Carter, Zeus. Not for long too long anyways, but considering our core of forwards I would cap Laughton as an elite 3rd line center in any near future around here so I don't see why 4th line duties don't suffice, if not suite him better at the moment. Im sure he would be looking at some PK duty and immediate looks at top-9 when we have injuries. We have no need to force him up the depth chart and it puts him in a likely position to exceed expectations rather than fail or fight to meet them. Def worth the 9-game preview.
talbot-laughton-rinaldo would make for a dangerous 4th line if he can pull his weight in the circle. We also have the depth to release him to the WJC if theyd be willing to consider it.
