You cant use his stats to win the arguement that he doesnt deserve to be in a professional league yet, AHL or NHL.

If you understand BC's program then you would know that TOI is given by seniority not skill. How are his numbers supposed to be worthy of your blessings when his TOI is limited?

I see it all the time with my local team, the West Point Black Knights. They made the ECAC playoffs this year and the 1st game, a one and done elimination game, was played by the back up goalie who was a senior becasue it was his last game. As a fan it's frustrating but for some college programs that is how they build an understanding of team unity.

The kid has skills and is legit. If you watched the NCAA playoffs or the WJC's where he was afforded more TOI in critical situations, the kid excelled, produced, and fed off the responsibility, litteraly taking his game to another level.

Once again, saying he's not ready yet based on stats only, is a misinformed arguement.
