I think so. But Jordan Owens and Blake Parlett signed with the Rangers after playing on AHL deals. Having him in our system, playing in CT, is definitely to our advantage if he proves himself this year. He's taking part in development camp. He may also go to Traverse City.

It's possible that if he does really well, other teams will come calling, but I doubt he'll make that big of a splash as a rookie. If he does, then hopefully he will sign with the team that gave him the opportunity to showcase his abilities.
