Katic will have the potential to play the same way as Keith Ballard and Chris Campoli.
Mark has good offensive potential and plays the puck well. His size is not anything to brag about but he is not scared to take a few hits. Katic does have a good wrist shot, but is hesitant to shoot often.
Katic has the potential for the Islanders, but with the core of defenseman present, katic will have plenty of time adjusting to the pro level at Bridgeport for maybe the next 2-3 years.
