It's too bad that our roster opening isn't more for winger than center as if he were to start in the NHL, winger would be easier on the kid. I don't doubt that he could play in the NHL off the bat. Not saying he could, would, or should, but I really don't doubt it. For all the arguments against the AHL route, one obvious positive is that it means he could play in the NHL this season without having to make the team out of camp.

Are there any parallels to the Girgs situation?
Looks like he played in 2 different Junior A leagues his draft year. Metro Junior A Hockey League (finished with) and Central Canada Hockey League (started with).
