I'm loving him right now for the Eagles (I have season tickets). He has made some freshman mistakes (i.e. silly penalties, defensive lapses) but nothing catastrophic or unfixable.

He is arguable the best defensemen on the squad 6 games into the season as a freshman. He has certainly shown why he was a first round pick already. Looks much better than Kreider did here as a freshman. I am actually really jealous of your guys and this pick. He looks like a stud.
Thanks a lot for the report! After watching him at the prospect camp, I thought he seemed to play a similar style game to Brian Campbell.. But if there is any physicality in his game, I am wrong.. I'd like to catch one of those BC games sometime soon..

Also noticed Rocco with a goal and assist tonight.
