The very under-sized 5’7″ 170 lbs. player skates with all the grit and determination of a power forward but with roughly half a foot less in the height category.
He consistently put up triple digit penalty minutes in his final three seasons with Maine Black Bears and also had a knack for getting into the open areas for scoring chances.
He’s already proving he belongs. It took him little time to establish himself as he got his first point, an assist in his 2nd game and added another in the next contest. He followed that up with his first fight and then scored and is currently on a two-game goal streak, with the addition of another fisticuffs bout for 22 total pims.
Parent club New York Islanders is very likely taking notice. He’s been in prospect camp with the team and was born in the area, so it would be no surprise to see him sign an entry level deal this summer for 2013/2014.
