He wasn't getting a whole lot of minutes, and was playing in a lesser league. There were questions on what sort of opportunities he'd get.

Michael Futa, Kings co-director of amateur scouting, convinced Owen Sound to draft him in the import draft in the first round. He was than subsequently traded to the Soo, where he will likely get a lot of ice time.

Either way, I'm very excited about him. I think he'll have a great year in the OHL.
