And to the main question, I was always a bit confused as to why Detroit never game him a call up as well.
I remember having read that Detroit thought Ilari to be top-6 forward and because they had all top-6 spots covered, they didn't want to put him to 3rd or 4th line to play minimal minutes.
And this season he has become a better player. For example, last season he made 10+21=31 pts in 44 games and now he has played 14 games and is already at 8+12=20 pts.
