i ask because i'm not sure myself. he played in a smaller role in landshut and did fine, but he proved in the DNL play-offs that he's still a scorer in his age group as he was pretty dominant and a major reason his team won the title. so while he had to play a certain role among men, he didn't lose his scoring touch at all.
so i'm not saying he's ready for the AHL, but he might be. especially considering that he will never be a scorer in men's hockey.
