WASHINGTON -- The Dustin Byfuglien at forward experiment might be a short-lived one for the United States.Byfuglien played on the wing during the Americans 3-2 victory over Finland in their final exhibition game Tuesday night and had the lowest ice time of any player. Coach John Tortorella explained the move earlier in the day as a way to see the six other defensemen on the roster.Were still trying to make some decisions on where people fit and in our mind we always felt Buff was kind of a wild card moving into a couple of different positions, so well see, Tortorella said.Byfuglien had a big hit on Finlands Olli Maatta, but skated just 10:32 in a fourth-line role. After splitting his NHL career between forward and defense, the 31-year-old Byfuglien became an All-Star defenseman the past couple of seasons with the Winnipeg Jets and didnt seem too comfortable going back up front Tuesday.Its definitely not my favorite spot, Byfuglien said afterward. Its just something they wanted to try and that was it.Asked about his hit and some other impacts he made, Byfuglien said: Its my ice time. Ive got to do what I got to do, what Im told to do.Byfuglien should be back on the blue line when the U.S. opens the tournament Saturday against Team Europe. Tortorella loves what the 6-foot-5, 265-pound Byfuglien brings with his shot on the power play.Were not putting him in front of the net, Tortorella said. Were going to have him shoot the puck because he can shoot it pretty hard. I hope hes a weapon.Byfuglien is a unique player because of his skating ability for his size, physicality and his shot. U.S. winger Patrick Kane, who won the 2010 Stanley Cup with Byfuglien as a forward on the Chicago Blackhawks, appreciates the Minneapolis natives versatility.He kind of plays that rover style of game, anyway, where hes all over the ice and in front of the net hes a big body, Kane said.Hes a special player. Hes one of those guys thats kind of a rare breed of skill and power and hes fast for his size. Hes pretty much got everything. Hes very physical, as well. He can do anything out there.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno . Darius Slayton Youth Jersey .
