I know that coming into camp he was in a race for a spot in your bottom 6. I actually started a thread on the prospect board about a month ago proclaiming that he is NHL ready and that he would make the Ducks full time this year.
How is that prediction holding up? Seems mixed so far on what he should do? Top line minutes in the OHL or bottom 6 minutes in the NHL...
He's shown flashes of looking ready but mostly looks slow and clumsy. I personally don't think he's good enough yet and we have better options for our third line than him. I've got a feeling he will be sticking around for the 9 games regardless of whether he deserves it or not.
Also, surely it's better for his offensive development to dominate juniors getting top line and PP minutes as opposed to playing 8-12 minutes a night in Anaheim and scoring 15-30 points.
