Career: This season was Cumiskey's first taste of the NHL



Report: I couldn't get a good read on Leopold, but Cumiskey wasn't has hard...Moved extremely well with the puck... I thought he looked more comfortable and creative with the puck in the defensive zone...Offensively, he seemed hesitant, but I'm confident that he'll be just fine in that area...Seems like a good skater and a solid passer...Couldn't get a read on his shot...He had twice as many hits as Tyler Arnason, in just 73 less games...Looked decent on the powerplay (although no points)...Didn't embarrass himself defensively at all, although he might want to go for the simpler (read: safer) play more often.



Fast Fact: Cumiskey's first NHL goal came against Manny Fernandez in Minnesota on January 6th.



2007-2007 Salary: $475,000


2007-2008 Status: $513,000



Outlook: I really liked what I saw from Cumiskey in his short (9 game) stint. Obviously, the comparison to John-Michael Liles is hard to avoid – they both are listed as the same size, and have similar skill sets. I have a hard time picturing 2 5'10" offensive defensemen on the same roster for any extended time, so I don't envision seeing the 20-year-old Cumiskey much on the parent club much next year. I do think he could develop into a nice offensive player down the road.
