I posted this on the closed thread, but yes, if this is any indication.
Here's the stats breakdown of Tyler Biggs since August for the 2012 U.S. WJC Camp. 2nd in team scoring, not bad for a guy some penciled in to be a max 4th line winger in the NHL.
Most players played between five and six games, three with the split-squad teams before cuts and up to three after cuts.
Here’s your Top 5 scorers:
Sean Kuraly — 5 GP, 6-3–9
Tyler Biggs — 6 GP, 4-3–7
Colin Blackwell — 5 GP, 2-4–6
Nic Kerdiles — 2-3–5
Stefan Noesen — 1-4–5
Tyler Biggs — It took Biggs a couple of games to get into the swing of things, but once the games against Finland and Sweden hit, he was among Team USA’s best in camp. Six of his seven points came in three games against the European squads. That’s what is really encouraging about Biggs’ camp. The big forward was able to produce while not sacrificing his hard-nosed game. If nothing else, most of his points came thanks, in part, to that hard-nosed style Biggs is a powerful skater, which, in addition to his physical strength, is really important for the big ice. He showed a little more touch during camp than he’s displayed in the past, but still won’t wow anyone with his skill. The most important thing is that he’s learning how to use what he does have more effectively, and it happened to translate into points in camp. I don’t know if he’d be a major point-producer at the WJC, but he’d certainly be an important asset.
So as we can see, this is why some Leafs fans are very optimistic on Tyler's progression as a prospect, production and large intangibles he is showing in a player that has carried onto the OHL this year with another 6 points in 5 games.
