from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
For a rookie, Rasmussen seems to be carving out a way to success in the NHL.
Saturday’s goal was his fifth of the season and he scored for the third consecutive game — all in the general vicinity of right in front of the opposing net.
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound rookie is a dangerous net-front presence, with his hand-eye coordination being an effective attribute.
“He’s an excellent net-front guy, and he’s good player everywhere else,” Blashill said. “So where is a guy going to separate himself in the NHL? To me, it’s net-front for him.
“He’s going to score a lot of goals in this league because he knows how to go to the net, he knows how to tip pucks, screen, how to leverage his body.
“He’s going to be a good net-front guy for a long time.”
Said Rasmussen: "You guys always kind of ask me that (about net-front presence), and I just say the same thing. It’s kind of my game, my job.”
