Coach Joel Quenneville saw Stanton in Rockford this fall/early winter and likes what he’s seen.
“I really enjoyed the way he’s played this year. He’s stable and adds depth back there, brings consistency on the back end,” he said. “He’s got some experience, got some physicality. Every game, you knew what he was going to do.”
“He’s very close to playing up here; he’s seeing our system and learning from that as well,” Quenneville continued. “A lot of guys are going to get a chance to play. He’s earned it.”
