I'd say about a year. If he progresses decently, he could be a call-up option next season, though I definitely don't see him making the roster out of camp until 14-15. He plays with a lot of energy, but takes at least as much as he gives and will need to learn to be smarter about that so he doesn't get injured so often. His offensive game also didn't immediately gel at the pro level, so that will need time as well.
Hopefully he recovers quickly from his concussion, so he can get back in the line-up soon for Rochester.
