He was originally a 3rd round draft pick in 2010 (#66 overall) but has yet to receive a call up on a team that stocked fairly well with blue liners.
At 6′ 201 lbs he doesn’t seem like the biggest of guys out on the ice but he plays a much bigger game than his size stats may point towards and is not afraid to drop the mitts, ending last season with 195 penalty minutes and 11 fighting majors to his credit.
Although his offensive numbers ticked up slightly last year in a few less games, he’s not what you’d deem as an offensive powerhouse. Still at a two season combined +33 there is plenty of accountable upside to his game.
He along with just about every other eligible player was recently reassigned to their new affiliate Syracuse Crunch.
