Also Nic didn't get much exposure since he missed almost half his season with injury. So scouts probably didn't get the chance to see him all that much (despite that, scouts still had him ranked as high as 20), but I was very impressed with him at the U-18. He looks like with some refining he can be a Ryan Kesler type two way player. Of the California born prospects (guys like Grimaldi and McColgan and more) out of recent drafts, I'd say Kerdiles is the best since Etem.
I agree completely. I watched the Hlinka tournament and everytime he was on the ice he stood out to me. This was the guy i really wanted with the 2nd pick. His compete level is off the charts.
