It was a bit ambiguous, I ment a top 15 in a draft-talent in the sense that he is the type "talent" you normally get like in the mid 1st round. Good size. Natural skater. Smooth and fast. And who offensively has put it all together. Like he isn't like Boedker or Pääjärvi-Svensson who got a ton of talent, but who isn't really defined offensively.

Its very rare that you get a talent like this, as late as we did.

But at the same time, there is of course big reasons to expect Spelling to face alot of adversity in the coming years. He will need to adjust alot to go to the SEL. Then as much as again when going to the AHL. And to the NHL.

But still a very interesting pick considering where he was taken.
