"I really like him" said one scout. "To me hes a third liner in the NHL. He does the little things right that coaches love. You can match him up against a top line and he'll do the job."
A teen phenom who played in the USHL at 15 alongside teammate Nick Ebert, Vail has developed into the type of player a coach throws over the boards to a protect a one-goal lead with a minute to play.
He has also become an important penalty-killed for the squad, but still post decent offensive numbers.
I'm loving this kid more and more.
