Dave Bolland, by comparison, scored 57 goals in 59 games as a 19-year-old in 2005-06. He was a second-round pick, was a better finisher at 19 and will be a better finisher in the NHL than Kadri -- if his back holds up.
To be fair, scoring in the Junior leagues tends to cycle through stretches where everyone scores a lot...some years the leading scorers will get 140+ points, some they will barely scratch 100, like the last couple of years.
