He impressed the Carolina organization enough to earn a three-year entry-level contract - though it appears likely he will spend at least one more year with Jokerit.

I saw him that year two times in International games and he didn´t show for me enough to get drafted in the first three rounds of the draft. He was finally drafted by Carolina in the 7th round (#208 overall).
