Basically a free 7th-round pick. I'm sure he'll spend much of the next couple summers with Gagner working on his skating/strength, and hopefully he grows an inch or two. Should be a dominant WHL player over the next couple years.
Amongst 1991-born players in the WHL last year, he was the 3rd-highest scoring behind only Schenn and Kane, who were both top-5 picks in the '09 draft. And he did it for a very low-scoring team. Certainly there's some talent there to work with.
Would be interesting if Schoeder jumped to the WHL (I don't think he will, for the record) because they'd almost certainly be playing on the same line for Everett next year.
