Seidenberg, on hand to play in Milan Lucic’s softball charity game last night, believes that his former ‘Canes teammate Joe Corvo will boost Boston’s fortunes during the defense of the Stanley Cup title.
“He’s an offensive guy and I’m sure he likes to shoot the puck and that’s what we need – guys getting the puck to the net and creating rebounds,” said Seidenberg about Corvo, who was acquired in a trade to replace Tomas Kaberle. “And I think he’s been doing that in the past and I’m sure he’s going to do it again.”
Seidenberg played on a pair with Corvo sporadically, as Corvo mostly played with Tim Gleason and Seidenberg skated with Joni Pitkanen when that quartet was together in Carolina. He could wind up next to Corvo this season depending on what alignment head coach Claude Julien and his staff opt for.
Seidenberg offered this scouting report on his former teammate:
“A very, very good skater. Good hands, good passer,. Very fast. I like playing with him like I did in Carolina. I’m looking forward to it and I think he’ll fit in really well.”
