I guess the Isle's brain trust (how's that for any oxymoron ?) felt he outgrew junior hockey. He did seem like he was ready, good size and strength and showed a really nice shot on his goal. I was surprised by his poor offensive play though, which was supposed to be one of his strengths.

I predict he'll be back by the New Year, though he is still eligible for the WJC's this year. I'd love to see him go to the tournament, and then come to the Isles.
