from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
The 30-year-old native of Moose Factory, Ontario, isn’t trying to make the team as a checker. The Stars will take a look at him on the wing with Mike Ribeiro and Brenden Morrow. Talk about a carrot.
“For a goal scorer, you have to get an opportunity,” Stars coach Marc Crawford told ESPN.com. “We think we’ve got an opportunity here to give him a real good look in the preseason and see if he can find some chemistry between him and Ribeiro and Morrow. They need a shooter on that line and he is a shooter. He finds open spots and Ribeiro finds open people. Morrow goes hard to the net and is a hard, hard guy.
“It is a great opportunity, and who knows how it’s going to turn out. That’ll be determined by Jonathan. I’m hoping that we get a surprise and he’s able to make our club and be a contributing guy for us.”
It’s not a coincidence Crawford is giving Cheechoo the chance.
