From Richard Durrett at the Dallas Stars Blog:
Ott bangs the boards, fights for loose pucks, gets in front of the net and has shown a deft scoring touch too. He’s becoming more and more like a Brenden Morrow clone by the game. Ott had a goal and two assists on Friday, extending his career-long point streak to seven games (4 goals, 6 assists). He also has at least one point in nine of the last 11 games.
“If I can be a quarter of the player Brenden is, that’s great,” Ott said. “He’s a great leader and a team guy and I’d love to have him back in this dressing room. I’m just trying to play hard hockey and tha’ts something Brenden brings on a nightly basis and he’s a mentor to me so I want to keep playing that way.”
Ott has said for years that he was more than just a physical player. Now he’s proving it.
Also, Tom Cowlishaw has a piece on the “rejuvenation” of Mike Ribeiro in today’s Dallas News, as well
