I really am not surprised at how well he's playing. Even before he was drafted, I got the feeling that this kid is an extremely hard worker with a ton of character. He's proving me right with the way he's responded this season.

To put it in perspective a bit, he's currently tied in points(although he has two more goals) with the 1st overall pick from last year, who is only about a half-year younger, in the same exact number of games. The same 1st overall pick that is currently playing on a line with a guy who was basically a PPG player in the NHL last year, and on the PP with a 22-year old top prospect defenseman who is leading the league in points.

I know Nino has Nelson, who is a great prospect in his own right, but the fact he's putting up these numbers without having anywhere near the amount of fire power that these other guys have is insanely impressive.
