I think it was more the fact that he did all of the right things and showed he can play against guys that might already be in the NHL, AHL, and guys his own age.
Scheifele can only play the AHL this year the same way he did last year. I think he'll get a short look at camp though just so they can judge and evaluate him.

Schiefele was awful when he took them last year. Little was 49.6%. Slater was 54.4%. One of Antro or Burmi will have to improve because one will likely be a center. This is an area as a team we are weak at and NEED to improve.
Wellwood is good but Noel is opposed to using him there.
I would love for us to have our third line as Poni-Antro-Welly and have Antro play C but Welly take the draws.
