Mark Letestu may shift to the wing when Jordan Staal is able to return from an infected foot.
"Right now, he has done a great job at center," coach Dan Bylsma said. "If he could be an offensive player and a threat (on the wing), you may look to get him in that position when Jordan comes back. But if he continues to play center like he is right now, he may make a bid for a third-line center position and solidify that." Letestu has four goals and seven points in nine games this season, so a spot in the top six as a winger could be in the cards for him.
