It appeared he was getting top 6 minutes with some power play time too.
Good to hear a recent update of his game.
It seems that it was a good choice and right moment to change to North America. If he continues with developing his playmaking skills and point production a late 1 round draft pick or second round seems not at all impossible. His small size though might decrease his ranking somewhat if we compared with Nicklas Jensen.
