He seems to have developed well, scoring lots of points and leading his team in scoring. What is his NHL potential?
Interestingly enough, my inline hockey team played against his team this summer and he once tried to pull the ball up with his stick from behind the goal and score Lacrosse-style. I blocked the attempt by batting the ball away with my hand.
He then chopped me in the mouth in frustration.
Anyhow, he does seem to be developing, but it's always a question about if anyone in the NHL is interested. Guys like Kreutzer and Barta, Ullmann and Wolf have also taken interesting paths of development and have played solidly on the international level to boot, but they've not been considered overseas either.
I think he's going to the Olympics now and it'll be interesting to see if he can hold his own. I didn't expect him to develop like this offensively.
If he WANTS to open some eyes in North America, he's got to have his agent find a spot for him on one of the summer rookie camps somewhere. He'd then have to perform well.
Maybe a team would then look to sign him to an AHL contract. If he could prove himself there, then he might have a shot.
Otherwise he'll just have a nice DEL career.
