Loved Jan Erixon as a player and for a forward he was not much of a scorer. IMO though he was the best penalty killing forward we ever had. When Erixon got hold of the puck there was no getting it away from him. He'd take it to the walls or a corner and kick it up and down the boards and drive other teams nuts--sometimes with two or three guys all over him he'd kill off 30 seconds + all on his own. He was just about as strong on the puck and as relentless as you could get.
Would love to have his son on our team. Not giving up Kreider for him. If Calgary decides not to move him I would consider picking him at the 15 spot as he looks like a sure thing after two seasons of development.
