Just hope he does not become stunted in the physical game by the injury, has been a joy to watch him play so big and physical in the ES.
But how does his 5'8 physical style cope with North America? He can move the puck, but he doesn't have high-end offense. How many NHL teams draft a guy that small for his defense? Not nitpicking on you, just trying to find the reasoning behind drafting someone like him as an overager.
