Hey guys, I'm just curious how Willie Mitchell has looked so far this pre-season. Has he played well in the games? I know the guy can be a great shutdown defenseman, and if he is in fact 100% healthy, you guys will likely be very happy with his solid defensive play.
Please let me know of any and all observations you've made on him so far.

I was at the game on 9/23 against the Coyotes. He looked rusty at first but settled down after a period or two(it was also his first preseason game). Looked like he wanted to fight Upshall as well and I was glad he didn't due to his concussion past.
Yup first game - He looked awfully slow against the speedy Yotes but seemed to adjust better in the 2nd half of the game. In fairness to Mitchell everyone on the Kings looked a step behind the Yotes players. Speed teams give us a problem - Nashville, Phoenix, Chicago, and even Edmonton.
