Video: Scott Mayfield, teammates, discuss his development

New, comments

The until-recently-latest Isles debutante discusses his game.

In case you missed it on the MSG broadcast -- which is quite possible, since interest in the season's embers has waned -- the latest callup Scott Mayfield had his turn in the spotlight on the occasion of his NHL debut.

Above and at this direct link is Mayfield, some Bridgeport teammates and coach Scott Pellerin on the development of the 21-year-old Denver University product.

Mayfield describes himself as a defensive defenseman first, loves to play in the corners, in front of the net and block shots. But he wants to be known for making that "good first pass" and contributing on offense too. (Also, since he's a St. Louis native from the Show-Me State, I'll just assume he's not easily impressed by people who talk loudly about themselves. But you go right ahead.)

Pellerin raved about the work Mayfield did over the summer, and calls him "probably our most consistent player since day one" this season.

Mayfield was recalled over the weekend after the injury to Calvin de Haan and debuted against Columbus, making him the seventh to get his NHL debut this season. (Brett Gallant makes one more.)
