Personally I think he's our most underrated prospect right now. When we drafted him I assumed he was basically a 4th forward who plays no defense, but he impressed me last year the few times I saw him, and from everything I've read this year he's only improved. I know he's 20 right now and you'd expect him to be getting better defensively in a Junior league, but honestly as long as he plays borderline solid defensive hockey at the next level I'll be pleased. With Streit getting older and Visnovsky all but gone after the season, we can use a young PMD going forward. Even if he's limited to 3rd pairing minutes, he could still eventually become a huge part of our PP.

Hopefully the lockout ends, a guy like Donovan gets a spot on the Island and Kichton gets to replace him in Bridgeport.
