I haven't had much time to watch prospects this year so I've only seen one game, he looked good in it. Very creative and not afraid of the high-traffic areas. A bit clueless defensively from what I saw (or more likely just never had to play defense due to his high skill level), but as I said — one game.
Hertl sounds exactly like Jensen. Thats a good thing.
