Its because he was so unknown. He didnt even start his draft year in the OHL, came on to the Soo and hardly played at all first half. Then he just tore up in the second half. To go from not on an OHL team to being drafted in the second round is a big accomplishment. It shows how far hes come though, led OHL dmen in goal scoring last year and now is absolutely crushing everyone offensively.

At 6'4 and very mobile there is a lot to like but it isnt all that surprising he was a second rounder to me
