Ryan Kuffner's Game

“Everybody’s been so welcoming here, all the guys and staff,” Kuffner said. “It’s just awesome, an incredible organization and obviously it’s an honor to be a part of it. I’m just trying to take it all in and learn as much as I can.”...

Kuffner produced 22 goals and 22 assists in 31 games this season. In four years at Princeton, the left-shooting Kuffner collected 75 goals and 152 points in 132 games.

“I think I try to be the most competitive guy out there,” Kuffner, who’ll wear No. 56, said. “I think that’s the biggest thing, just working as hard as you can to get in the spots that you try to be in. After that, try to execute. I want to use my shot as much as possible, just know where the guys are on the ice. I think that’s the biggest thing when you get into space.”...

“If he’s going to make us better, he’s going to be a scoring winger,” Blashill said. “He scored lots of goals in college. I had a chance to watch some of his shifts, I had a chance to talk to him before he made his decision. The one thing that impressed me was I asked what was most important to him, he said timing. When you get an answer like that, that means you’re a smart hockey player and you understand time and space and finding ways to get open and then when you get open you can use your assets.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
