To me, he is the most talented forward on the Marlies currently.
People like to slight him due to his size, but Abbot is exceptionally strong on his skates. He has excellent vision (possibly even better than Nazem's) and great offensive instincts.
I would not be surprised if he ends up being the first call-up for the Leafs or even if he sticks with the team as early as this season. In my mind he's nearly ready for the NHL as it stands.
