For an 18 year old who was drafted 29 last year, it's a great sign.
I'm more impressed with the fact that I haven't seen him out of place defensively. It's just one game and I want to see how he does against tougher opposition, but he does already look like a Devils forward should defensively. Very impressive for a rookie coming straight from juniors.
