"He's given us some great play. He's been very versatile. He's played all three forward positions, played on the penalty kill, been on the power play as well, and he's scored some big goals for us."
-- Stars coach, Marc Crawford
On Feb. 22 against New Jersey, the versatile 21-year-old returned from a 10-game absence with a shoulder injury. And two nights later in Detroit, he assisted on Mike Ribeiro's game-opening goal to help the Stars to a 4-1 win against the Red Wings.
In his eight games back, he has centered the top line in place of Richards and also played on both wings. But such versatility is nothing new.
