Hasn't impressed me today at all.
I guess you're saying he's not a top prospect because he was drafted in the 5th round but he is a very good prospect. Spott already called him the steal of the draft. I thought it was a huge joke he lasted this long in the draft.

He's not big but he's not too small either. He's Jordan Eberle small. In fact, the player I compare him to is Jordan Eberle. Very smart kids who can play in all situations. They understand the game perfectly. They're a real treat for their coach. Always at the right place to score timely goals.

He has good numbers, the kid was always way above his teammates in the +/- department while leading his teams scoring. He's not anunderager. He's 18.

He shutdown Yakupov in the Subway Superseries in November and August. He can be used in all situations. Terrific player as far as I'm concerned.
