In that regard, he's going to have it much harder than Hall or RNH. Nonetheless, he's got 3 goals in 5 games now. I think we ought to consider that a success. Kid's a special talent for sure.
He played in the OHL for two years... I mean yes his English isn't great but he isn't exactly fresh off the boat.
