Eh, but if he plays well and is the best out of all the options they have, isn't it kind of stupid to not play him just because he's 19?
There's a long ways to go and obviously he needs to earn his spot, but if he earns it he earns it. He shouldn't be sent back for the sole reason that he's 19.
He can play 9 games without his contract kicking in, and can play around 40-45 before a year is taken off of his waiver eligibility. There's plenty of time to evaluate him int he NHL and decide whether or not to keep him up there, if he earns a spot in camp.
If he earns it, play him.
