He was in training camp and officially signed a pto to join Providence Bruins on opening day but was slow to start with only a pair of goals through October.
The small-ish, energetic forward picked up the pace big as the team started to gain its footing and currently has a career high 18 goals and 31 assists for 49 points (both team leading) in 58 AHL contests with a +19 rating.
He was rewarded a month into the year with an spc to stay.
He’s on pace to play a new best games in a single season and also post more shots on net than he has in a past campaign.
The soon-to-be 26-year old, former Saginaw Spirit and Portland Pirates‘ captain with 35 NHL games experience is a good leader for the young minor league squad and could be playing himself into another big league deal for 2017/2018.
He’s easily worth a look.
