I met him at the last carnival. Seemed like a nice guy.

He was very nice to a small kid who was in a wheel chair. The staff were trying to get him to hurry up because he was away from the regular autograph line to deal with the people with handicaps. He put his hand up and told them he wanted to spend time with that kid.

Flyers' Grossmann throwing a block party

He's a beast. Solid defensive player. Underrated. I like his play a lot for what he brings to the ice.

Drawbacks: History of injuries and doesn't have a lot of offensive upside, but does a lot of important things well.

Obviously not fleet of foot and sometimes gets exposed but he compensates well with positioning and physicality more times than not. I like his game overall and he was a good pickup. Just worried about his history of injuries and the way he plays the game pretty much assures he will miss time throughout a season....

IMO hes been terrible with the puck this year. But hes still good at being physical and blocking shots.
