In a strange arrangement for his rookie season, he signed a series of pto’s with the Monarchs.
His numbers through three AHL seasons have stayed relatively the same, reaching 20+ assists in each of the campaigns. The relatively small-ish looking blue liner at 5’11” 195 lbs. did suffer his first career injury sidetracking him for some of 2011/2012.
One increasing attribute to his game is his improved, more accountable defensive zone play.
Chances are he’ll put up career high numbers in 2012/2013, but it still might leave him short on the depth chart to make his first NHL appearance.
