But I'm talking more about the fact that Callahan has managed to be a pretty big offensive player at every level he's played at. He had three seasons in Guelph where he was a point-per-game or better player. He scord 35 goals in 60 games in Hartford before the Rangers brought him up.
But both guys you mentioned are better comparisons than Ortmeyer.
I don't feel like looking it up, but I think both Clarkson and Bergenheim have also had scoring success at lower levels. I mentioned them more because they're in the same age range as Callahan and play a similiar style. And I think all three teams are waiting for that breakout season from them. But for all three you need to take scoring at a lower level with a grain of salt.
The bottom lines of teams and the minors are littered with players who scored at junior, college, and/or the AHL, but could not replicate that in the NHL.
