If he continues to progress, we could see a real elite player coming to the NHL. He's got a very Malkin-esque swagger about him. He's definitely progressed a good bit more than Yakupov since being drafted. I've been very impressed.
I agree, he's got the swagger especially with the way he's dominated the O this year, but I think were going to see him start on the wing when he first enters the league. Kind of like what the bruins are doing with Seguin
