He's also very mature for your average 19-year-old.

He was still 17 when the B's drafted him, and I was blown away by his comments to me when we sat down for about an hour at the hotel in Nashville on Sunday after the draft wrapped up.

I won't say that I knew he was going to make the Bruins as an 18 YO- nobody saw that coming- but I did feel he was going to do it soon, because he was so level-headed and focused on being a professional.

He's a terrific story, and Canadian hockey fans should be thrilled to have him in their WJC lineup. He'll do a bang-up job on an already stacked team. Gold or bust in Grand Forks...
