When the San Diego Marlins signed Alex Pearson he was penciled in as a 3rd/4th liner with decent potential, but he’s worked his way into a top 6 spot this season. Playing on the second line with teammates Dalton Wilcox and David Clarkson Pearson Struggled early, but has slowly been improving through the season. He currently has 14 points in 22 games,6 Goals 8 assists which is nothing to write home about, but he’s been playing a lot better and more consistently recently.
His forecheck is getting better, His skating is finally up to par and his defensive game is slowly improving. Hopefully his shot works it way back and he begins to pot more goals which is what the Marlins would love to see. His line mates have been stellar and carried that line for the early parts of the season but Pearson finally looks like he’s figuring everything out and slowly becoming comfertable. Hopefully the Marlins can make a rather big push for the playoffs and a deep run would certainly make them one of the more successful expansion teams.
