Glad to hear it! Just in time to see him play for the first time, on CBC tonight. Looking forward to it.

As for the sudden exposure of our defensive shallowness, I think we all figured it to happen sooner or later...

I only seen the third period, but Alex did a pretty good job in a limited role. Looking forward to seeing him again tonite.
