The kind of lanky 6’2″ 185 lbs. forward started his pro career in the ECHL with Wheeling Nailers, where he lit the lamp with ease clocking in at just shy of a 1.5 points per game player and was reassigned and recalled from on a couple of occasions during his rookie season.
There were some minor rumors floating that he was a difficult player in the system.
He signed a training camp tryout agreement with Houston Aeros to start the third campaign of his pro career and although he failed to make the opening night roster, he was kept on and sent to their affiliate Orlando Solar Bears.
In 6 ECHL games he has 6 goals and 8 assists with a +4 rating and has been quickly called-up to Houston. Turns out he was a healthy scratch for one game and sent back. When he gets his chance, you can pretty much bet he’ll produced on the scoresheet.
Nice black eye in the pic, right?
