Safe to say the kid looks to be back to form.

Watched him on Sunday and showed MASSIVE improvement from my two early season viewings of him. His solid skating was back and he didn't show any cracks when facing a stiff forecheck.

Is a very underrated passer and was able to start the rush or join it.

My only concern with him now is that he needs to play more 'mean' as a guy who is 6'4. Isn't afraid to hit, but I would like to see him be more involved in gritty plays and in scrums. At one point he was challenged in a scrum and totally backed down.

Either way, he was very impressive on Sunday. He's currently 4th in my WHL rankings, but I could see him passing Morgan Rielly by the end of the year, mostly due to extra exposure.
