I believe it. Dude was a friggin' rock star during his first stint in Albany. Of course, the Rats weren't very good back then, so we loved our fighters. (Rob Skrlac's name is still spoken in reverent tones in the halls of the Times Union Center.) And it goes without saying that fighting has always been more prevalent in the AHL than in the NHL, what with guys trying to catch the attention of the higher-ups, though the trend away from fighting is being felt everywhere. In fact, the AHL just passed a rule where you get ejected after two fights in a game rather than three.
He's basically given up fighting - only had 46 PIMs last year in 51 games. That means at most he had 8 fights, and it's more likely that he had 6. Way down from his high point. Hockeyfights says he had 40 fights in the 2004-05 AHL season. Good god.
I think we'll see him again if the team is struggling.
Anyway, the fact that Cam managed to score three goals in one NHL season probably shouldn't be that much of a surprise. I'm pretty sure there have been articles written about this, but Cam has really worked on his hockey skills in recent years. A combination of age and the culture shift with regards to fighting have led him to recognize that if he's going to continue to have a career as a professional hockey player, he needs to bring more than just fisticuffs to the table. He'll never be an offensive superstar, but if he can show that he's not completely useless on offense and he can bring the energy in more ways than just fighting, he'll stick around longer than if he was merely a one-dimensional punch-throwing machine.
