Dustin Stevenson stretching his offensive muscles

Dustin Stevenson had played seven AHL games without a single point in his four years as a professional.

The defenseman's 26 points in 57 games with Wheeling last year was an outlier in his ECHL career. He averaged about 10 points a season before that.

In four games with the Adirondack Flames, Stevenson has two goals and four points.

Head coach Ryan Huska isn't going to expect that too often but said it's great to see Stevenson with this good stretch.

"Stevey is probably feeling really good about himself," Huska said. 

Stevenson played it down some, saying "I just try to play a good shut-down game, but anytime you can get a few points its nice."

He had an empty-netter with 41 seconds left on Saturday. He also took the initial shot that Michael Ferland deflected for the Flames' first goal and assisted Markus Granlund's game-winner.

On Friday, Stevenson scored on a monster of a shot from the point. The goal was reviewed and upheld but Stevenson said he's still not entirely sure it was good, "but I'll take it."
