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.
Consider it vouched! And, I know you can't tell from a conversation in a rink, but his parents seem like top notch people.

And Kirk will vouch for me, when he asked me who I liked I said, "Trotman." (Obviously there were guys who stood out more, but I was picking from the guys I hadn't heard much/ read much about. Humor me...I like to pretend that I'd be good at evaluating prospects. )
