It just might be a hard task to find a place to play Coleman. And it's not because there's no room for him on the
roster for him. It's far from that being true.
He's got good size, utilizes it well, and gets down in the dirty areas, tailor made for a grinding wing. However, he
does have good puck control and a great record at faceoffs, which is why he has been a center for most of his hockey
I'll sum it up this way: he looks to be a poor man's Sergei Brylin.
His aggressive style has been called a perfect fit for what John Hynes is trying to instill. It helped that Hynes' plan was
what Coleman played in while at Miami University.
His first pro season ended early because of a shoulder injury that required surgery, but he was ready to work once
the 2016 training camp opened. He would start the season in Albany, but was able to be a factor down there in both
ends of the ice.
He earned a call up in January for a road trip through western Canada and Minnesota. It was the game in Minnesota
that he earned his first NHL point, assisting on, of all goals, Beau Bennett's game winner in the last 5 minutes of the
third period. Now that's getting the job done.
