Matt Calvert

Hi guys,

i was wondering how Calvert was doing this year. I cant watch Jackets game and i noticed hes 0 pts -6 in 5 game, is he playing any good?


Will he be a regular bottom 6 player in the NHL? What's his ceiling?


Thanks !

Yes he's been very very good. Surprised by the +/- number, but that's more of a team stat. His forecheck and speed is very valuable for the team and I love his play so far. His ceiling is probably 3rd line checking forward wh ocan pitch in a few points.

He has been one of the consistently hardest working guys on this team so far. Shows good speed, and some excellent tenacity for the puck.

I agree that he will be a good third liner that will eventually be able to contribute some goal scoring. A young guy, on a young team that will hopefully develop positively with the rest of the young guys.

After this game, he's in sole possession of worst +/- on the Blue Jackets with that -6 (Tyutin and Prospal were both +1 tonight).

I've liked what I've seen, too, but that's not the sort of thing to just casually ignore.

Calvert is an easy guy to like. But the jury is still out on what kind of player he is going to be.

Very much how I feel. I think next year goes a long way in determining his future role with the organ-I-zation.

Yep, he works his ass off, and has stood out on the PK, but he's realistically still a 4th line guy in my opinion, until he takes his game to the next level. He had a couple nasty wristers tonight, nice to see him relax and shoot the puck. He's good enough to be here.
