Estimating point totals for Jason Strudwick is pretty easy. The stay-at-home, physical defender will show up more often in other categories, like blocked shots, healthy scratch and 5-for-fighting.
Strudwick can play the wing but is mostly used for defense (making him an ideal candidate to play LW should Jani Rita return).
I think Strudwick will probably play a bigger role than 7D/5L and in fact is a nice option should two of the youngsters struggle (Smid, Jacques) at those positions.
Mostly I’m curious about Strudwick’s ability to become another in a long line of D who’ve shown up on this team with the reputation of being veteran fringe players and blossomed under the tutelage of this coaching group.
