Indeed he does. While he's a low event player who doesn't really drive play, he is quite good at limiting chances/shots against and is very adept defensively. I gave up on him after last season and even in the first few games he played this year he looked pretty bad, but he's come around with his foot speed and general pace to the game. I guess I didn't give him enough leeway considering he had come off of a very serious knee injury and missed an entire offseason of training last year. He also has a deceptively good shot, if he can get enough good looks I could see him scoring ~10 goals or so a year if he continues to improve and get time. At this point he is a legitimate 4th liner at least.
