After scoring 4 goals and 5 assists in his first seven games, Kyle Jean has ONE goal and five assists since November 2nd.
Earlier in the year, Jeff Gorton spoke with Bob Crawford of the Whale and said that that Jean, being an un-drafted free agent, is going to try and follow the same path that led Dan Girardi through the system and to the Rangers “We brought him in to take a look and everyone is looking for big centers who can make plays and he hasn’t disappointed since he came into camp. He earned his contract and it’s been exciting to see what he can do at the American level
Earlier in the year at Hockey’s Future, Leslie Treff says of Jean “A hard-hitting, goal scoring center, Jean has been playing a big offensive role this season with the AHL Connecticut Whale.”
In the time since he scored Jean has registered a shot in every game but one.
