It's a shame that he missed most of this season because i think he would have been close to NHL ready going into next season based on how quickly he was developing in a pro league but this was a huge missed season of development.
He needs to prove that he's fully recovered from the injury (we all know how nagging shoulder injuries can be) before he has any designs of playing in the NHL as soon as next season. It'll be interesting to see how he holds up in Training Camp, i prefer that they be very cautious with him especially because of the injury. If he earns a spot then great but i don't want him being rushed into the lineup if Tambellini continues to ignore the defensive depth. A year in the AHL won't hurt him at all, it'll get him used to playing on North American ice.
