Then, this past fall, saw him playing T1 midget with the GBL Bruins and he looked even better in terms of his mobility, when he was activating and his overall two-way game.

Usually, kids his size are still very much in the gangly stage and awkward. He's going to be a polished, effectively swift guy as a freshman at Yale. Would not surprise me if he earns some attention and accolades right off the bat. Mature beyond his years and just a great kid/great family.

Introduced Bri to his mom and dad-- he can vouch for that.
Sat next to his Dad at the Camp and talked about how Rob was an Isles fan growing up. Also about draft day and how they kept refreshing the ESPN page (same thing I was doing ) to see where he had gone. Said they were a little worried because they heard VAN (who picked right before the B's) was interested. Not that he didn't like the Nucks, but was concerned about the geography, lol.

Seemed like a great guy.
