Tweet: Kris Newbury Fits A Role Perfectly

[tweeted]http://twitter.com/JimCerny/status/27430639779192832[/tweeted]

Newbury has played about 8 minutes in his two games so far. He has one shot, four hits, and 11 PIM’s including one fighting major.

He is 9 of 14 on faceoffs.

In Hartford this season he had five goals and thirty assists.

Newbury is signed through next season with a cap hit of $512,000.

…He fits the role nicely but with Sean Avery and Chris Drury? If that is a grinding line it could work but it just seems like leftover pieces added to a line. I don’t know where they would fit otherwise though and that is why they are where they are.
