Looks like he had a great month by the stat sheet (10 points in 12 games), but that's never how you want to assess a player like Ekbald. I've still yet to see him live in the OHL, but from what I saw last year, I'm sure he's played above average defensively for a 16-year-old rookie (I'm aware he's 15).
He's got a great hockey IQ, and I expected him going into the year to be solid defensively, but anything more than 20 points would be gravy. He's produced a lot more than I (and others) thought he would at this point.
Can't wait to see him at the U-17s.
