He's regressed as prospect since coming over to North America, or since his wrist injury. He's 6'2/6'3 200lbs with great hands, a very good shot and good skating stride. He was always a project, and our prospect pool has gotten much deeper since he's been drafted.

And he wasn't ranked that low on scouting reports. Central Scouting had him as the 18th best Euro skater.
