Hmm that highlight real showed some pretty good hockey sense and vision. That takeaway with the pull back saucer for the tap in was perfectly done. A project player with good sense who hits a growth spurt after being drafted? He could be a bit intriguing, especially to see if he can keep improving and play even better with some of the other top prospects.
Subway series tonight and the 12th should be a very fun watch to see his play as well as some top prospects. I have never even considered the Pouliot comparison in him, this is more like a Koivu or Brodin physicallity where he prefers to use his stick and rely on positioning to win him body battles. Still along way to go for him but as he gets more comfortable as a complete player/scorer he could have an opportunity with the Wild someday I think.
