He's one of a couple really intriguing sleepers playing in lower level Canadian leagues.
I watched a couple of his games at the end of January and really liked what I saw; he has everything you look for in center and seems pretty dedicated to not only scoring but being a complete player.

Apparently every NHL team had scouts in attendance for the MPHL (Mid-West Prep Hockey League) playoff tournament in St. Catharines at Ridley College near the trade deadline and one would assume they were there to watch him specifically (can't think of any other prospects there that NHL scouts would be interested in).

The only concern I have is that he's committed to a mediocre Providence program, but maybe they're turning the corner.
I was at that tournament as well and was impressed with the overall level of play. If this league continues to attract good players - from what I understand money, therefore, "inducement" is an issue at a lot of these schools - they could approach the overall lever of play of the New England League.

How about that Ridley campus though, eh?
