Any Alberta posters here that have seen him play?

EDIT: Just thought I'd add- anyone who follows the U-17 tournament will possibly be able to see him with team West. They take some of the top regional midgets every year but rarely underagers (St Croix is the only recent one I can think of)
Hockey Canada determines whether a player can gain exceptional status. Ekblad and Tavares applied to Hockey Canada as opposed to the OHL.
