Served as a healthy extra vs. NJ (10/10).
Scored his first NHL goal vs. NYR (4/11) ... Made his NHL debut vs. BOS (4/8) ... Recalled from Hershey (AHL) on April 7 ... Registered 45 points (25 goals, 20 assists) in 64 games with Hershey (AHL) last season ... Set career highs in goals, assists and points last season, led the AHL in power-play goals (15) and ranked first among Bears skaters in goals .. Recorded a career-high six game point streak from Feb. 6-15 (five goals, four assists) and has tallied 10 multi-point games.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
