I don't know, I think his upside is better than that. He's got an INSANE shot. Kid can score goals, no doubt. He's willing to crash the net, he's willing to screen the goalie, but he's also got good sense and positioning and can find good, quiet areas to score goals. I think the raw skill in his shot and skating speed, along with his grit and guts, along with his smarts on where to be will give him the ability to be a 25-30 kind of goalscorer, even at the next level.
Having 20-25 goal ability generally gets you promoted to a top six role with top six skilled linemates, that boost your point totals.
Sort of like Dave Bolland meets Patrick Sharp.
