Coach Ken Hitchcock thinks Marcel Goc will fit in nicely on the team's fourth line.
"This allows us to have the two guys that play there be hunters and then we have a guy that's backing up the hunting and playing that 'in-between-the-dots' role that we think we need from that position," said Hitchcock. Goc is slated to play between Ryan Reaves and Steve Ott after he was acquired from Pittsburgh in exchange for Maxim Lapierre. Jan 29 - 1:35 PM

Marcel Goc and Andrew Ebbett will sit out Tuesday's tilt with the Philadelphia Flyers.

If your pool rewards faceoff wins and hits, then Goc is a good player for depth as he has just four points and 36 shots on goal through 41 games this season. Goc has 51 hits and has won 54% of his faceoffs with 224 wins overall. Ebbett however has no value to speak of.
