his offensive game seemed pretty straight forward - either fire it from the point or send it back deep. not a whole lot of creativity but im not sure that's what he was drafted for anyway.
Thanks for the info. He is the one high profile Isles prospect I have yet to see much of. I saw him in the Memorial Cup before we drafted him and he didn't stand out. I think NHL Netork is replaying his game tonight. I will be recording it. Good to hear he is playing good d.
