The kid is a 16 year old playing a limited roll on a veteran offensively challenged team, with more skilled line mates and more PP time this kid would have a lot more points.
I agree that stats are not everything, especially if you compare 2 players where 1 is playing with a power house, and the other is playing on a team that is having lots of difficulties. I also noticed this year so far that the + - stats in this league are very inaccurate. I noticed a few mistakes involving OS players along the way so I kept an eye out looking for it. I'm not going into details for personal reasons but let me tell you, if the mistakes I see on 1 team exists league wide, the + - stats are a pure joke. Not the significance of the stat, but the way that the league moderates it. You can even advise them with proof and they still don't correct them.
