It was in the regular season but he kicked it up a couple notches in the playoffs. He's 6'4 and 210lbs at 18 years old. In the CHL he looks like a beast out there. Everyone always wants more from the bigger players.
From interviews it sounds like he likes playing physical. He says it doesn't totally come natural to him because being so big as a kid, he was an easy target for penalties just because he was so strong. Now he's starting to get more physical and it's growing on him.
