All depends on his defensive partner IMO. Once he has the confidence of always going in with the puck, he will be dangerous. He's doing so in the AHL right now. He'll definitely have his chance, too much upside to ignore.

He'll make it to the NHL. Question is when, I'd say he becomes a regular by 2015-2016 season. I think for sure he's expected to have high expectations with his talent. Dude tore up the OHL scoring for defensemen for draft eligible players.

I'm sure he'll up his game once the big stage comes. He'll gain weight/muscle, get coached into a more physical/defensive game. If we see what he does in OHL, and adds a more physical presence to his game, he'll be huge for us.

At 19 years of age, 6'3" - 215 , he'll likely be 6'4" 225 ish in his 2-3rd year of NHL experience.
