Happy Birthday, Raymond Sawada!

by Kristine

A very happy birthday to Raymond Sawada, whose is celebrating his 24th by being recalled from the Manitoba Moose (AHL). In the meantime, Chris Conner has been reassigned to the Peoria Rivermen (AHL).

I think this is a decision based purely on size. Sawada has it, Conner doesn’t. I remember liking Sawada in training camp. He’s a big guy who plays with a lot of energy and can be very physical (although he doesn’t use his size as much as he could, according to Defending Big D). He’s not much of a goal scorer or play maker, having only 18 points in 48 games. Against a team like Edmonton, though, you want a lineup who can bring intensity and Sawada has a chance to help with that.

The official release is here.
