Thanks in advance.
Well considering that if you project last years production over an entire season he'd have had some 54 points, 60 points really isnt any kind of a stretch. He didn't see much time on the PP for his first 20 games in the NHL so hispoints should increase right there. He should see roughly 3 mins of special teams play next season split pretty evenly between PK and PP. He should see roughtly 13-15 mins of even strength time per game in addition to the special teams time and 60 points is probably a little conservative for him. If he plays a full season (78+ games) then I'd project him between 65-70 points with upwards of 75 points not unrealisitc.

The NHL Network has been showing some of the Flyers/Pens playoff games from this past season, just watch them and see for yourself what this kid can do. It's almost like the game moves in slow motion for this kid. He's even better than anything we've seen so far in the NHL.
