He's one of my favourite junior players and as a Spits season ticket holder, I really enjoyed watching the progress me made this season. Will he become an NHL player? Who knows, but he's earned the chance and I'm really happy to see the Flyers take a chance on him with a 6th round pick.
Sounds good. If you can, let us know how he does next year, periodically, in our prospects thread. Thanks.
