The rundown on forward Aaron Lewadniuk:
2010-11 stats [career]: 17 goals, 31 points, minus-15 rating, 62 penalty minutes in 69 games.
Quote: “I have no reasons why I wouldn’t want to come back. … I can’t complain about anything, especially my individual play, my stats and just the leadership in my first year pro, I couldn’t ask for much more.”
Pros: Lewadniuk was the team’s go-to scorer in stretches as a rookie, showcasing his versatile potential as a playmaker, goal-scorer and fighter. He was the team’s lone all-star in January and a willing convert from center to left wing.
Cons: Lewadniuk would disappear from the scoresheet for stretches and was often only as good as the players around him. Whether that was just part of the learning process or an indictment on his potential as a pro remains to be seen.
