Anthony DeAngelo Has Been Impressive
Seen as expendable by Tampa Bay, due in part to concerns about his character, DeAngelo has thrived since his re-call from Tucson in early November.
Through ten games he has notched two goals and four assists, recording a point in all but four games. Initially just an injury call-up, he has carved out a roster spot for himself, forcing veteran Luke Schenn (and rookie Jakob Chychrun) to sit out a few times.
His defensive play has been suspect at times, but early returns are overall positive.
He has brought some much needed energy to the lineup and looks like he could be a part of this team’s future. A third pair spot on the right side is definitely not out of the question.
