...Radulov lead the QMJHL, by far.

In talking to WHL fans, they say Leipsic is the kind of player you can't help but love...never stops moving his legs, 100 percent effort every night.

That said, they feel his scoring is unlikely to translate to the NHL due in part to his size, and also in part to the fact that he's playing on one of the best lines in junior hockey with Blues pick Ty Rattie doing the driving...on a stacked Portland Winterhawks team.

NHL upside estimated to be 2\3 line energy forward, 15-20 goals. Think Gabby Bourque.

Not a bad thing at all, Bourque is probably one of the bright spots in our forward group this year, but I wouldn't expect an elite scorer in Leipsic.
