Loved this guy when he played for Hershey. Great energy guy that throws the body almost every shift, stirs the pot a bit and is a pretty decent fighter when he drops the gloves.

Interested to see what this guy can do. Lots of talk about him coming into the lineup when we lost Volpatti but it hasn't happened till now. Hopefully he can add some excitement.

he's performed pretty well unlike most of the canucks that were in chicago during the lockout...if not for that injury, he'd have already been up and on the 4th line with volpatti and they may not have picked up sestito. but that's up for another discussion.
