33 years old, left handed shot, 6'4" 205lb, but pretty limited playing time the past few years.  I have only vague knowledge of him from being on the Ducks.

 

But I guess it's a warm body with some size an NHL experience, right?

Does anyone know anything about him?  Also, why the hell would you sign him to a one way contract?

Not going to pretend to know anything about this Huskins character.

 

Google tells me he's big. That's a start.

Kent Huskins: 6'4" 205lb with 6 hits in 25 games last year.

 

I think Howie has more hits then that already this year.

The one-way deal is kind of a concern.  This seems like a guy who should be splitting AHL time.  But frankly, I'm starting to think that there will be a spot for him in the Top 6 if he's at all healthy, given 48 games in 99 games and the issues we already have.

to be fair, howie has bigger balls that 3/4 of our lineup. he also most likely has more fights than majority of our roster.

Yeah, was just about to say.

 

I guess we'll see what we see. (NO PRESSURE KENT.)
