He was probably the second best player in that tourney behind Crosby and both were the same age at that time. Last I heard he was with Peterborough in the O. Anyone know how he is doing now and know if he has a shot at being drafted in the next NHL entry draft?
He still plays for Peterborough and is one of their top players. He had 52 points last season, and so far this year has 38 points in 36 games, including 16 goals. I expect him to be drafted in the mid rounds, his major setback is his size as he is only 5'11" and 185 pounds although he plays with a little grit.
