It doesn't even make him a lock to make the team one day, but then less than 5% of 5th rounder ever do so the fact that he is holding his own with lots of player projected to make the NHL is indeed exciting. It's a freebie. It's like finding a 50$ on the ground. Your budget most assuredly did not rely on finding free money, but it's damn nice all the same.
Plus he was relatively young to be playing forward for that squad. Youngest drafted forward I believe.
