Things have always been easy for alot of these guys from the age of 3. Next year is the biggest jump to date. For some of the higher skilled guys, they can quit as they have never seen so much resistance and equality in games they have played.
I personally think he will be fine. Brett Thompson, Jason Akeson, Chris MacKinnon, Andrew Agozzino
all had alot less talent and where important OHL players. He should be better then them, he is at the same age. He'll struggle at the NHL level if he doesnt grow, but the OHL has had alot of smaller bodied players succeed, and that was before Branch took alot of bite out of the league.
