What surprised me is that he completely layed out about 3 players in the first period alone. I didn't know he had the strength in him -- didn't pass up many chance to play the body. Lost some steam in the 3rd, but I think that was more due to the game being out of reach than him being really fatigued.
I've only seen him play a couple of times but in every game I've seen he forechecks like the Tasmanian Devil, every time he has a guy lined up he wants to put him through the glass and a few rows back. It's impressive given that he's I guess average sized for the NCAA and will be slightly undersized at the pro level. I remember he slammed into the boards in one of the WJC games, he didn't have his man lined up quite right but he still went all in on the hit.
