In the college game it just didn't translate the same. His point totals were disappointing and he never seemed like he knew what he was doing out there. His skill level slowly became overshadowed with mistakes and skills that as competition got higher were simply no match for that of the opponents.

Pinneault is a growing kid with excellent offensive instincts but he was overwhelmed at the college level and I'm not sure jumping that soon to the college level was wise.

He's a kid who is growing and filling out and still harnessing his immense talent, but everything he did this year didn't seem to work. At times he looked lost out there and there's no gurantees that his rush to the college level won't have an impact on future development.

Thanks. I think I read somewhere on these boards that Pineault's coach barely gave him any icetime because BC has so much depth, is that correct?
