Stats in bold signifies team leader.
It wasn't a bad summer for the Reverend. In June, he was part of a Cup winning team. The next month: he rejoins the
general manager that brought him up as a pro.
Lovejoy's arrival corresponded with two departures on the backline, in which he provided an immediate need: Adam
Larsson's with being a right-handed shot, and David Schlemko's with the ability to provide secondary blue line offense.
He does bring a grittier, more physical game that either of those two, though. Nothing "lights out" like Scott Stevens or
Anton Volchenkov, but he'll battle along the back boards for ya.
Plus I have noticed that some fans just love the name, especially coupled with his nickname. In 2016, who HASN'T
grown up watching The Simpsons? lol
