Second Review Mark Flood

By John Panarese

He was an emergency call up for what became a patchwork defense at times and played 6 games with the Isles. According to the stats, he had 1 assist and was a -4 rating over the 6 games he played.

It’s hard to grade a guy who was thrown into the fire and had his development process rushed quite a bit. Also, because of this, his ice time was limited for the most part. It’s hard to say what Mark Flood will eventually bring in the future for us, but he certainly did well enough for the big club. Thus, I would give him a B rating, though I add the disclaimer that his 6 total games and limited ice time makes it difficult to give him a full appraisal.
