NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards:
“Chris will never bring you out of your seat with fancy goals, but he doesn't make many mistakes either and keeps it simple. He moves the puck well and every time he gets it, he makes a good play or outlet pass and gets it up the ice. He has that ability to skate the puck up ice and create offensive chances.”
I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
