In Dave Lozo's feature on Derek Stepan over at NHL.com, the rookie had this to say about what he needs to improve on if he wants to be an NHL center...
"Faceoff circle. I have to get better at that," said Stepan, who was 5-of-10 on draws Thursday. "I think it's just the first-game jitters. It's something I have to work on."
...someone bring in the retired Rod Brind'Amour to teach this kid a thing or two.
...with his preseason performance and Drury's injury I just can't see a scenario where he isn't in the opening night lineup.
...now that doesn't mean he'll stick, especially of he struggles. But you have to love the chemistry between him Gabby and AFro.
