This kid looked awesome. I've seen him sveral times at the AHL level and he's looked good.. nothing great but still very very solid. He's been overlooked and underrated cause he's splitting time with Ouellet..but damn the kid started his first NHL game tonight(against the Wings mind you) and gave up 1 goal on 40 shots! His hutout got ended in the 3rd but what a hell of a game for somebody who was supposedly just up because he makes less than Ouellet. I think Charpentier better watch out his backup job could be gone. Washington want Ouellet to get the FULL workload in Portland and with Stana there it isn't happening. Fact is, the kid looked good. I know it's just one game but even so what a showing.
