I think so. He's proved to be quite slippery even at the NHL, which was my biggest concern (him getting worked over by NHL-sized and NHL-fast forwards). We haven't heard a ton about the coaching staff considering him for this year's roster, but it's clear that he's impressing them, otherwise he'd already be in Kitchener. It's hard to be definitive about him being on next year's roster because the only guys whose contracts are ending are defensive defensemen, but my belief is that the team will make room for him (or Faulk) by moving an offensive defenseman before next season begins (if not during this season).
