In OT, he had the puck at the half boards in the kings zone, with 2 Ducks players around him, and no outlet pass as 2 Kings were changing and Mitchell wasn't open. He showed great composure to just keep a hold of the puck for a solid 5-6 seconds under pressure along the boards before throwing it around to Mitchell when he was open. You would expect a rookie to just panic and either try and thread a dangerous pass through or just dump the puck and lose possession
He also made a very nice board play where he got body position first and then just skated out with the puck. He and Mitchell look very good together. I just don't think he will stick once Martinez is healthy.

Murray and Lombardi have already told him he can play in the NHL, but they don't have a roster spot for him. That hasn't changed.
