Hey, Henke is Elite and he came out of nowhere. It can happen but look at the contenders. No argument about their top players being Elite
Right now, the only ones in our system who could possibly follow a Henke-like path from anonymity (i.e. later round pick or undrafted) to stardom, could be:

Yogan: he was thought to be a first round pick heading into his draft year, had a down year and has been injured ever since - up until this past week.
Fasth: unknown Swedish player who was one of the better performers on their WJC team and was playing on HV71's first line in the Swedish Elite League when he was injured
And... that's all I can think of. Maybe Shinnimin if we sign him?

Thomas might have first line upside if his size isn't an issue, but I would call it a "coming out of nowhere" if he became elite since he was drafted in the 2nd round.
