Laughton has been a huge surprise. Easily been our best forward so far behind Giroux, simmonds and maybe Hartnell. His skating is superb, one of the best skaters on our team. General consensus is he's small, but he's really not. He has some good size for an 18 year old kid. He's ferocious and reminds me of Mike Richards, but his skating is miles ahead of richards' skating now, and he still has plenty of time to improve. Laughton's offensive game is pretty underrated from what I've seen so far. He has some very good puck skills. I think people are selling him shot on offensive expectations. He's quickly making some of our forwards expendable in the future.

His offensive skills have even surprised me also honestly, though I'm not sure he'll ever have 2 PPG seasons like richards has. For the record richards hasn't shown in 3 years that he can be near a PPG again FWIW. I'm not too familiar with Jenner though, but this is my take on Laughton.
