I've only seen him play in 1 preseason game. So pretty much all of my info is from other sites that are further south then my present location. I thought he was one of the few d-men we had that actually played the body. It was sort of refreshing but he's a long ways out IMO. From all accounts, he seems to be a typical AHL rookie. Not very consistent. As for his timetable-late next year for a little teaser or somewhere in the 2005-2006 season.
