In all home games this season I haven't seen much that gave me the idea he could be an NHL player anytime soon. Frankly, the only play I remember him for was a match penalty for a terrible boarding that left his opponent injured on the ice.
He wouldn't be playing in juniors since he's coming over from Europe and would be an over-ager as well. But yeah judging from what I've heard/read, he should probably stay in the DEL for at least one more year.
