Gonna be a dandy.
I've watched him a ton too. He does have a similar skill set to Kessel. I'd argue his shot isn't as good, but he is more competitive and well rounded than Kessel for sure. I love his game. I haven't enjoyed watching a WHLer as much since Darren Helm. I've lived in Swift Current for a year and was in Medicine Hat before. It was always a treat watching how hard the Tigers play every night.
People think Etem is the reason Shinkaruk was so successful, I'd submit that it was a very reciprocal relationship. Etem and Shinkaruk are very similar players, but Shinkaruk is two years younger. I hope the Flames land him.
