He played 10 games for the Toronto Marlies (AHL) at the end of last season and did pretty well for himself there. Really helped stabilize a defence that has been either hot or Nunavut winter cold all season and displayed some real veteran saavy too.
He's a bit slow of foot and looked it with the Marlies, so his skating hadn't recovered from the 2 years on and off the ice. But still, he made up for it with very solid positioning, to the point that he was only very rarely caught flat-footed during his brief stint. Decent two-way play and an all around smart player.
Good player, for his sake, I hope he plays. For every other team, I hope he doesn't. He can be an awesome weapon, he has a laser beam of a point shot. If he's healthy, he could be a good 2nd pairing D man for you.
