Analysis: He'll make his NHL debut Tuesday night against Carolina. After a very slow start to his pro career with Binghamton, Wiercioch has made good progress of late, having notched one goal and nine assists over his last 15 games. He's a smooth-skating, offensive-minded defenseman with nice size (6-4), but he'll need to add some more muscle to his frame (he's currently listed at 185 pounds) before he can think about earning a full-time spot in the NHL. If he works hard over the summer, Wiercioch has an outside shot at making the big club in the fall.
