I was wondering if they were holding out to see if Gio wanted to play. I assume he's waiting until camp ends to see if anyone develops an urgent need for a vet forward. But that seems not to be the case. Looks like Simpson is not a veteran forward. They must really have a lot of faith that Olofsson, Ogelvie & Asplund will be big producers this year and they don't need that Derek Grant, Seth Griffith type guy. At least Simpson isn't a center, lol.

He replaces Sahir Gill's 18 goals from last season.

Looks like to me it will be scoring by committee & balanced scorning on a 4 lines.

When I saw the headline, I thought that it was the son of the guy who used to pitch for the Reds in the early 1970s.
