Abeltshauser's progress has actually been quite steady the last few years, the jump in his production is due to the fact that Halifax was arguably the worst junior team in Canada for his first two seasons here. This year the team is filled with young, talented forwards, so Abeltshauser's numbers are finally reflecting his talent.
One issue is that he needs to learn how to play more physical with that massive frame of his. Of course, the one time he went out to deliver a big hit this year he ended up getting a suspension for it. Which is one reason I think he really needs to be in the AHL, he's literally outgrown junior hockey.
On another note, Abeltshauser was also recently name one of 3 finalists for the QMJHL Humanitarian and Community Involvement Trophy.
