Final Grades 2014: Cody McLeod, #55

New, comments

Cody Mac did what Cody Mac does: bring it.

Hannah Foslien

Avalanche fans always know what they're going to get with Cody McLeod. He works hard all the time, drops the mitts for his teammates, and chips in some offense. Oh, and takes penalties. This season was no different other than the fact that one of the penalties led to a suspension. After sitting out those five games in October, McLeod came back to play a solid game, fitting into that fourth line role for which he's designed and filling in on the third when injuries struck.

c6hor8: I thought Cody did a great job in his role this year.

Mike: Doesn't block shots, but throws hits (4th on team).  2nd Unit PK, but takes a bunch of penalties. 13 pts in 71 games.  Another tweener, this time between the bottom line and the third.

Cheryl: Can't help but love that toothless grin. Glad he settled into his role on the fourth line. Now if we can only keep enough top-nine guys healthy to continue to utilize him there, we'll be set.

c6hor8: Looked average like everyone else.

mfured20: Cody was fine

Mike: I don't see what he brings to the post-season that they didn't get in the regular season. Basically I don't feel he elevated his game. Yeah, he had a goal and 19 hits, but he also had 22 worthless PIMs at the end of games. Where was the agitator?

Cheryl: Meh. I would have liked to see him get under the opponent's skin a bit more. I guess it's hard to throw octopus when your foe isn't interesting enough to have a tradition to exploit.
