IMHO, he is one of the best Dmen in the NCAA. He made great strides in his offensive game last season and as a result it made him not only a better player but a more well-rounded player.

30 points....are you referring to the NCAA level when he reaches the pros, specifically NHL? 30 points in college should be well within Welch's reach. At the pro level? It's hard to say at this point, except to say that if he continues to develop/get better, he could eventually.

ttnorm: I agree with you on him being a great candidate for ECAC POTY. However, he'll definitely have some competition in that department, including a couple from his own team. ;-)
