Undrafted, played in the Q on Rimouski and Chicoutimi last year. From his stats I figure he's a puck-moving, more offensively-minded defenseman.

He's tiny! Listed at 5'9" & we all know they measure guys with skates on!!
Has anyone seen him play? Is he a Rafalski type?
Seems to have come outta no where....

From last night's game he sounded like he was playing well. And if he is like Rafalski, that would be pretty sweet.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

He played with offensive flair while this was his strong point it was also his weakness often ending up with a two on one going the wrong way :(

just last night's game, but holy bujesus he was fast.
he played with Ohlund, and played really well.
no mistakes, a couple of really good pinches, and won a couple of foot races.

He and Reid semed to have similar speed.

I was at the game last night, and his size did surprise me for a defensman, but he played quite well. If they keep him paired with a stay-at-home partner he may help pick up some of the offense lost by Jovo. And as a 6th or 7th Dman he shouldn't be paired against the other team's top lines. I was actually less impressed with Bourdon who I expected a lot more from. :?

yeah, Bourdon still seemed to make a lot of mistakes last night.
that highlight glove save that Luongo made was off of a #4 turn-over.
I say play him 20+ minutes a night in the pre-season, get the kinks out of his game.
the timing an positioning will come - best to get these gaffes out early.

You see that pass Bourdon made right up the midle in his own end, man Bantams don't do that

Perhaps not but jovanovski and even Ohlund and many many other NHL D-men do it time and time again. It's a glaring mistake but it always happens.
