Hurley "gets it" in terms of knowing the work that has to be done in order to get himself to the NHL, and has leadership qualities.
You could see the step forward he took from last year to this in the way he plays without the puck- backchecks, finishes his checks, battles, etc.- he flat out "wants it."
I have him ahead of Erne, Fasching, McCarron, Johnson, Bailey, and a couple others.
Also, worth noting...youngest player in the draft with a 9/15/1995 birthdate.
From my last record, I have him standing at 6-0 155lbs. Is he obviously weak in his game, something that he needs to improve on? Or is he stronger than what those numbers suggest?
