If he can add some serious muscle and still retain his speed and agility, sure, he can put up 60-70 points in this league. But that's a big question mark.

Let's not kid ourselves here. The reason we picked up this kid in the fifth round wasn't because of the Russian transfer agreement or anything of the sort. He's small. If he was 6'2 200 lbs. he would have been a top five pick.
Keep in mind that the kid is still a teenager.
