Pleasantly surprised by this move. It will be interesting to see how they use him. My guess is he is just short term insurance in case Brown misses a significant amount of time and he will end up back in the AHL once Brown is healthy, basically he would just be replacing Jay Rosehill
. At the moment the only real they have that they could call up from the minors is Jamie Devane and he is nowhere near ready for the NHL.
Hopefully I'm wrong and they are planning on keeping him even when Brown is back because a lineup that includes Colton Orr
, Frazer McLaren
, Mark Fraser
and Mike Brown
would be great to see.
