After 9 contests with the ‘Blades and some rough stuff, which the 6′ 205 lbs. d-man has never shied away from, he was signed to a pto with Worcester Sharks to fill in for an injury depleted blue line. He played his college hockey at BC, so in a sense it was a homecoming.
The 26-year old has definitely not ever been looked to for his goal scoring ability and has mostly been seriously on the minus side on ice.
But in 6 games with a grisly Worcester team, he already has three assists, is skating at a +2 plus/minus and fitting in nicely with the team chemistry, meaning his already dropped the mitts at least once.
He may have just found himself a home for pro hockey in a league he’s more familiar with in this NHL lockout season.
