I'm looking at the Peterborough team he played on and I'm not disappointed by 25 goals in 60 odd games as one of the younger players on a team that only made the playoffs due to the OHL's generous seeding.
Jared Staal had 21 in his draft year. That total didn't impress me then, 25 doesn't impress now, especially from a gritty forward that's a mid first-rounder.

My boy Werek got 32 on a worst team than Peterborough. He's lighting up the other teams at the U18's (4 goals in 2 games).

Get me that guy. He'll make for a more productive pro. I guarantee it.
