I've seen him play once and also heard lots of good things about Grimaldi. I'm sure he'll be back on the US WJ teams over the next few years. Sometimes getting cut can really motivate a player. Most players (even the best) get cut at some point in their careers. If everything is handed to a player on a golden plate that might be fine for hockey skill development but does nothing to build the overall character and maturity of the player.
