He has two goals and three assists. I linked the video of last night's goal - he was handed a breakaway and finished it, nice move to get the goalie to commit, it shows some individual skill, but he didn't beat the defense with speed or moves, just got the puck at the blue line with no one in front of him. I think the other one was a tap in from in close on a rebound. The Royals won 11 in a row before going loss, win, loss, win in the last four. Everybody is getting assists, since the team is scoring - even Grubauer has a couple.
Maybe he is just young and inexperienced, maybe he doesn't speak enough English to understand the systems yet, I don't know. So far he looks like the younger brother who got in the game because somebody didn't show up. The game is going on around him, as he skates around in circles. He certainly doesn't look like an NHL prospect so far. Hopefully I'm wrong and some day I'm saying I saw an NHL all star back when he was a rookie in the ECHL.
