Ryan O'Reilly, drafted #33 overall, is enjoying a pretty decent rookie season with the Avalanche.

He averages over 16 minutes a night and has shared time in every situation.
I think most folks would agree that Ryan O's quick start was a major surprise. I'm also hoping for his sake the Avs did not push him too quick. there is a generation of 18 yr olds that have been kept in the NHL largely due to sizzle and $ factors. we may be doing some review on their careers at a later date

But yes you are correct.
