That's the thing that stood out the most. He played a pretty good game and showed off some nice stick handling and passing, but good stick handling and passing can vary from game to game based on on/off nights. The strength he showed on the puck was definitely something new this year that wasn't there last year. Hopefully this is the payoff from having him develop in a men's league that was hoped for. Hopefully he's gotten used to playing with bigger stronger guys than him, and now that's he's playing against kids again he's just flat out stronger than the competition.
