Through 44 AHL games he has career highs with 23 goals, 35 assists and 55 points and currently sits second overall in scoring.
The former 5th round pick in the 2009 draft (#150 overall) notch 4 tallies and a helper in a big midweek 6-3 win that has to have him wondering when his next NHL call-up is.
He skated in 3 games with the parent club this season and 7 overall but has yet to come up with his first mark.
The 5’11” 176 lbs. forward was well over a point-per-game player in three years of juniors in the QMJHL and looks to be ready to contribute at the highest level of hockey as he continues showing his potential in the prospective system.
Signed in the off-season to a one-year extension he’s set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the current campaign.
Look for the current captain to continue with the farm club, while he waits for another opportunity.
Of little surprise, the 24-year old was named AHL Player Of The Week on February 3.
