No doubt though - his playoffs were excellent. If I've seen correctly, he had 2-9-11 and a +8 in 15 playoff games. Just amazing considering he only made it onto the team as a regular around Christmas time when he was "experimented with" on the blueline. This offense from the blueline sure as heck wasn't expected.

Don't know if he'll be brought over right away, but as mentioned above, he could take a very similar path to the NHL that Schubert has taken.

His season was nonetheless very good reason for optimism.

Each of Braun, Gogulla and Holzer spent this season displaying why they were drafted. They've given their respective clubs lots of reason for optimism.
Thanks. My only concern is that his transition to defense came in the year that the Kings would have to sign him in order to keep his rights. Hopefully the Kings saw enough to sign him and bring him to Manchester.
