I'll wait until he turns pro, is playing in Bridgeport against players his own age and older, before getting excited about his potential impact.
Kichton shouldn't be in the CHL right now, but lets not discount what he has done. The kid had 81 points in 64 games as an 18 year old in the WHL. Just to put it in perspective, Morgan Rielly started this season at 18 years of age, yet he is currently at 28 points in 33 games. The kid shouldn't be in the league right now, but the two years prior he wasn't exactly a "man amongst boys" in that league at 18 and 19 YO.

Andrew MacDonald has proven the overager thing really shouldn't dictate how you view a prospect, as long as said prospect is producing. Kichton has done nothing but produce since he's been drafted.
