The 5’9″ 175 lbs. (minimum weight any player is 9/10 times given) was finally given an AHL contract within the last month of the regular season and with one more appearance in the postseason will outplay his previous high from his rookie year with Las Vegas Wranglers.
The 27-year old veteran blue liner could easily sign another ECHL contract for 2014/2015 and follow a similar path of call-ups but he may also grab a roster spot out of training camp or earlier in the off-season.
He’s easily earned it.

Not wanting to wait until someone else could sign him Wilkes Barre/Scranton stepped back in offering a one-year contract.
The soon-to-be 29-year old was definitely consistent enough to score the extension with the Penguins.
