Every time I watch the kid I find myself trying to come up with a single NHL comparison but it always ends up being some Frankenstein concept of several different players. Last time I watched a junior aged player this unique was...well, guess who.

Connor's got the speed/explosiveness of Phil Kessel, the vision of RNH, and the hands of Pat Kane. His skillset is second to none, it's just some peripheral/physical things that need to evolve and he will be an absolute generational talent. He tends to get beat along the boards and in corners quite a bit but man, he's 15....if he can develop this side of his game, watch out.
