One goal, two assists through 20 games. Not stats that make the opposition shiver in their skates. It’s the role players that make or break a team though, and every great team has those players that go into the corners and do the dirty work.
Steve Bernier is one of those players. I wasn’t sure what to expect when he became a member of the Devils. You hear former first round draft pick and you think of a player that is a little more flashy.
Bernier doesn’t give you that feeling on the ice. He plays the game with almost a minimalistic approach. I don’t mean that as a knock, I mean that he makes the most out of the effort he exerts. He isn’t going to go out of his way to try and make a big hit because he knows it might put him out of position.
Bernier, in my opinion, is a very important player on this roster. I see some chemistry brewing between him and Zajac and I hope that as that develops it can help both of them become the players the team needs them to be. As the role player goes, so goes the New Jersey Devils.
