Your Say: Mika Zibanejad

The Silver Seven staff have given out their grades. Now it's your turn!

We finished our player grades for the 2013 season on Friday, but that was just nine jerks talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. So, we figured why not give our readers a chance to cast their votes? And with that in mind, we present our Your say series!

Mika Zibanejad Recap


Initially asked to play wing, Mika Zibanejad benefitted from his teammates' witch doctor injury curse (the same witch doctor responsible for Stephane da Costa's miniature head). Zibanejad suddenly found himself playing in the best position on the team and put together a respectable 20 points in 42 games, eighth amongst rookies. A year prior, ZIbanejad managed only a single assist in nine games (in the first game at that) before being told to get back on the fjord to Sweden. All told, a good first full season for a kid who should only get better.

Highest grade: B+
Lowest grade: C+
