Pyatt has four goals and two assists this season, with a plus five and 38 hits.
Pyatt has spent time in the last two games skating with Ryan Callahan and Derek Stepan.
In describing his game, John Tortorella said “I think Pysie has done a good job, you take out some turnovers and he has been a pretty good player. What I like about Pyatt is that you can put him in a lot of different spots. He is strong on the puck, a big body, not the best skater but he is deceptive, he gets there. There is flexibility. He can play both sides.
Tortorell also said of Pyatt,“he doesn’t say much, but he does a lot of good things for us on the boards. He has been very consistent in how we want to play below the hash and on the boards.”
Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti both praised Pyatt in the game against Tampa Bay. They talked about how Pyatt is a hard working player, brings flexibility to the lineup and his ability on the boards. Joe mentioned that Pyatt seems to have a near perfect record in coming out of a board battle with the puck.
