If Gaudreau was born a month later, he would be in the 2012 draft, and undoubtedly be mentioned as a potential first rounder. Hes that skilled. When on the ice against Kenny Agostino, I didnt even think it was that close as far as skills, Gaudreau was better.
Hes basically a 17/18 year old in a 15 year olds body. Which makes what he does even more amazing because hes playing against guys that have grown much more then him.
He will definitely turn heads, and is a lot of fun to watch.
Kane is basically an average sized male- just small by NHL standards. This kid is small even by normal standards for a guy his age.
I mean there's a chance if he really is that skilled but I can't see him becoming a bottom sixer with his size. I guess we'll see. Steal of the draft? A little early to say.
