18 GP, no goals, 6 assists, team high +14. playing his senior year with future NHL legend Mark Jankowski.
I'd say none, realistically. I could see him signing with Wheeling outright, but I don't see him getting a NHL deal out of college. I wouldn't be surprised if he signs an AHL deal with someone next year and gets a two-way NHL offer from another team the following off-season. He's just too far the depth chart here to get a shot, even if he switches full-time to wing.
