Hopefully after his 3rd or 4th year he's ready to take the next step up to some AHL/NHL time. Would like to see him approach point/game production by the end of this year. Would put him in the same league as guys like JVR, Backes, and Booth.
A guy like Nick Bjugstad had 20 points in 29 games his freshman year, Stepan had 33 in 40. To expect such a project to be achieving point-per-game totals is a little bit of a high expectations.
