He’s reached a new high in scoring with 11 goals with minor league affiliate Springfield Falcons and second most for points, currently at 36.
He has yet to realize his first NHL contest but has appeared in a whopping 386 AHL games, registering 44 goals and 144 assists with a combined +36 rating and a back-to-back Calder Cup Championships in 2009 and 2010.
The 27-year old is signed to a 1-year, 2-way deal through the end of 2013/2014.
A contract extension may well depend upon how he and the team perform in the upcoming postseason but he’s certainly right on track.
Original story date 4/12-14.
Early in 2014 free agency, he was offered a one-year two-way deal to join Arizona Coyotes.
Suffering a shoulder injury during practice early in the season, his time was limited to just 23 games with affiliate Portland Pirates. He did fairly well scoring as he usually does with a goal and 11 assists.
The now 29-year old has decided to accept his next deal from overseas and will skate his 9th season for ERC Ingolstadt.
