Yeah, right now he's playing at about the level of most of the run of the mill fourth liners the Canucks have run through the fourth line that last few seasons, but he's also 23, a rookie, and has a good track record of putting up points at the AHL level.

If he can pick up his defensive game, I can definitely see him turning into a decent third line player or at the very least, the type of fourth liner you can feel comfortable moving up to the third line in times of need.
