Adam Rotter: We’ve seen McKegg before, he’s a depth forward that will pop in a goal from time to time. He could be the 13th forward and/or someone that swings up and down from Hartford. Hunt is another player that hits and plays a physical game. He might skate on the opposite wing of Sammy Blais, likely with Kevin Rooney between them, and just go out and hit, hit and hit.
