Good signing for Hamilton. Trotter, Palushaj, Willsie, Leblanc, Avtsin, Engqvist, Russell. Should be a pretty good top 6. Engqvist is probably better suited for the 3rd line spot though.

That is good with the departure of Boyd/DAWWEESS

He had a 20 goals 40 points season only four years ago in the NHL (yes you read that correctly). I guess he can be a good emergency callup if injuries happen.

I see it as a Darche-like signature. AHL veteran with potential to help a bit in the pros.

Guess he benefited from the scoring boom in 05-06 after the lockout.

Darche 2.0 Version Anglais, maybe better since he has a better shot

http://forecaster.thehockeynews.com/...layer.cgi?1422

ASSETS: Is a responsible two-way player with a great work ethic. Has shown a nose for the net, especially at the AHL level.
FLAWS: Still needs to add strength if he intends to raise his game to another level. Has a great shot but doesn't produce enough with it.
CAREER POTENTIAL: Journeyman depth forward.

Right handed shot too...watch him surprise a lot of people...

Wow, didn't know this guy was still around.

As some have said, he's essentially Darche 2.0

P.S. Good signature for Hamilton. I thought the Bulldogs were missing a real offensive guy with the departure of Boyd and Dawes. With Willsie, Blunden, Trotter, Palushaj and Leblanc, it should be a pretty good team now. I guess we'll see next fall.

This is kinda like the Darche signing from a couple years back. Wouldn't be surprised if he got a couple NHL stints when injuries (as usual) strike.
