He was great in the Canada-Russia Challenge, I wonder if that'll give him a shot to make the WJC team? He could look good in a role similar to the one Couturier got in his draft year.
This is the comparison that I keep walking away with. I think your looking at a strong 2-way C, with good offensive upside. I think he will be a 65 - 80pt C. Not quite the same numbers that Staal puts up, but same style of play.
