I can help you there, don't think about it since it's a meaningless move.

Don't see why they would send him back to the Q, he led his team in scoring (ppg average) while dealing with injuries, time for him to move up.

He has been on the ice, last I heard he is doing well with his recovery and could be ready for the start of the season.

He looks like he needs to add weight and strength but somehow he goes in corners against bigger players yet often seems to come away with the puck. In the NCAA where he was playing against kids much older and bigger it didn't seem to give him any problems. I'm not sure playing in the Q as a 20 year old against 16-20 year olds would be a good thing, imo I'd much rather see him more challenged going up against bigger, older, faster, stronger players in the AHL then being back in the Q.
