He quietly* attacks the net on a pretty consistent and above average clip. It's not flashy stuff, but he's buzzing and getting and generating good chances most nights.

* he doesn't knife through defense the way Nylander does, or bulldoze the way Hyman does, or waterbug through a maze like Marner does, but he still has tremendous and deceptive speed and knows where soft coverage is and gets there. Like Connor Brown but without looking like he's trying his hardest.

Quietly effective is probably a pretty bang on assessment - thanks for adding the advanced stats. I suspect if you were at a game and able to sit and watch him you'd see all those little small good things that you probably can't pick up so well if you're watching on TV

I've been very happy with his play. You can clearly see he's a smart veteran player.

I thought last night was probably his most obvious stand out game so far

Not sure I liked the signing at the start but his play so far gives us a year or two of immediate possibility if the defence can shore up a bit.  Good player, comes to the game every night, better than I can say about some of the others.
