You know he's well coached. Gets to sit around a table consisting of Dineen, Tip, Quenneville, not to mention his dad during the summer. Suspended 4 times in a shortened season with the Oil Kings. He's going to have to learn how to harness that emotion we don't want him to become a gasp...repeat offender.
Looks like a great late pickup. Loved what was being said about him in our draft thread. Too busy with kids to watch the draft live, but am looking for scouting reports and info on him now. The Phoenix connection, with Ulf etc, is just a cool add on to the story. Great night for the yotes!
Talk about a marketing department's dream! Once we actually get one that is. An AZ native on the team, we've come a long way baby.
Hockey clearly isn't working in the desert!
Just saw a couple of the hits that likely resulted in his suspensions. A cross check high to the head and a knee on knee reminiscent of his Dad. Not a fan of that kind of play but it's better than watching someone hop out of the way all the time like Mueller.
Yeah, his whole birth thing is weird. He has dual citizenship, and he is going to be playing for the US in tourneys, I think. I don't know if his hometown is the same as his birthplace. which is Phx and which is Pitt? Guess we'll have to find out from him. It was a rather Pittsburgh centric day today.
