D. Heinen focuses on improving offensivelyJuly 12, 2019 | 01:49 AM
Danton Heinen will be looking to bounce back offensively in 2019-20.
Heinen had 47 points in 77 contests as a rookie in 2017-18, but regressed to 11 goals and 34 points in 77 games last season. He signed a two-year, $5.6 million bridge contract earlier this week and if he wants to land a big contract by the end of that, he'll need to show that he can build on his success as a rookie. "I'm going to continue to work on [the little details] because I think if you're good at the little details good things happen, and you're put in better spots on the ice. I'm going to continue to work on those details and then when you get chances, grade-A looks or [chances to] be an offensive guy that's kind of... do your follow up there. That's the kind of player I see myself being," Heinen said. "Coming into the league, I wanted to be an offensive guy. I wanted to, you know, create more, and I'm going to keep on working at doing that, trying to produce more for the team."
