Wouldn't say he's quite ready for the AHL yet. He's improved over the season to be an OK D in the SEL but he still needs to build muscles and also get some confidence with the puck. He rarely pose a threat offensively but that's because he is mature enough to play to his strengths and focus on his primary task - the defence. He never plays PP and would probably need another season in the SEL with more minutes in that area to evolve to an AHL/NHL D-man.
