If he's happy to remain in Denmark and become the best player he can be there, without having a worry about the NHL, than god bless him.
He is coached by his dad. But his brother and Thomas Spelling, whom he was regular linemates with, are both going to Sweden next season. I hope that will make him consider Portland, they have been great at developing young players these last few years. He is still quite small, mainly weight wise, but I still think playing in the CHL could be good for him, it could help him learn how he needs to develop his body and physical play going forward.
