This is the kind of player I could see the Caps taking with the later of their two 1st round picks (#16). He's going to need some time since he's still growing and filling out and going to be taking a huge leap in competition wherever he goes next. But when you've already got another high-ish 1st round pick (#11) in which to grab a more developmentally progressed player, you can take a flier on this kind of really interesting prospect.

I really like guys who grow late in any sport. They have to spend a lot of their formative years learning how to compete as a small guy, then suddenly they're a big guy with small guy skills.

You have to love his pedigree too. Grandson of an 18-yr NHL veteran and great-nephew of Red Kelly. Dad played college hockey at Cornell too.
