He was initially signed to a pto to start the year with the team.
In 29 AHL games this season he is on pace for career scoring highs with 6 goals and 13 assists and a +17 plus/minus.
Through 2010/2011 he put up 7 goals and 19 assists in 64 games with an impressive +14 mark.
He’s impressed the brass with Tampa Bay Lightning enough that they signed him to a two-year, two-way NHL contract last month and he was recalled in earlier this month for his first action in the show.
So far, he has only played limited minutes in 3 games (all losses) averaging less than 5 minutes a game but already has a first big league fight on his stat sheet.
An argument could be made that December is his best month, as it’s the month he celebrates his birthday and when signed his last two major contracts.
