Six goals & 6 assists in 65 WHL games in his 3rd year of draft eligibility isn't great. Then he misses virtually all of last year with an ankle injury. Jason Wilson had 17 g & 18 assists in 46 games at the same stage, and people say he doesn't have enough scoring skills to be a pro. Then again, McNaught would be a legit heavyweight, so as long as he can skate up & down the ice and not take dumb penalties, it may not matter (a la Colton Orr).

The Whale really do need a heavyweight, and it would be great if McNaught can fill that void.
