i'd be amazed if AA doesn't turn into a 60+ pt player. his talent is right where it should be for his stage of development, and so is his hockey sense. on top of that he does a fair amount of hustle for a guy that doesn't really get a chance to get "into the game" like he will when he starts getting 16-18 minutes per game (which is also why i believe some people here think he's "invisibile" at times on the ice).
he's an all tool player that is already fairing well on face-offs. he uses his body more than i suspected he would, and seems to have a knack for forcing opposition turnovers. his immediate tendency when he has some open ice is to drive the net. i haven't seen a wrister or slap shot that completely blew my mind, but both shots of his seem powerful and accurate enough to be a goal-scorer in this league.
10lbs and a year or two of experience is going to make this guy a 2 way goal scorer, and he already has the sense and skill to be a legit playmaking pivot. imho he's a sure-fire player that will be able to compete to be a number 1 center on a fair number of teams in the NHL.
