Girardi started last season in Charlotte of the ECHL. He wasn't there long and when he made it to Hartford he started racking up the points and the pluses almost immediately. I'm thinking he's in the 6'2 range and somewhere around 210. He had an excellent season in Hartford and just signed an NHL contract. Not having really seen him he strikes me more as a finesse type of player. One way or another he came out of nowhere and became a go to D-man on a pretty good AHL team. To me he looks like a legit contender for an NHL job in the future.
