As a beginning-mid second round pick, he's slightly exceeding expectations. Second rounders generally make teams and play a bit, although lots of our second rounders seem to bust.
That's why I'd call him a steal, especially with our poor drafting history. It's been a pleasant suprise to have a 2nd rounder play solidly and still showing signs of improvement. 20 picks from the 2nd round that year have yet to register a point in the NHL.
