Ask Jarkko and the other HFD regulars about him. When Cerny interviewed Gorton and Clark at the draft, he was the player they identified as the biggest surprise among the team's prospects last year. Lastly, while I grant you that YouTube never tells the whole story, I've watched pretty much everything I can find on him - including the Whale highlights which are fairly extensive for last year's PO games - and he looks legit to me.

That's the exact same thing I thought when I read that.
Mostly it's just minor differences. Hrivik's got to work on his skating for real though--get another step. Maybe he should talk to Brian Boyle about skating lessons from Barb Underhill. If he fixes that he could be a real player.
