Johnny Boychuk as a prospect

Was looking for a bit of info on this guy when he was in the avalanche organization, and what he looked like as a member of the AHL team and in juniours?

I compare TML's prospect Jesse Blacker to him in play style, and was wondering if I could get some info from others that had seen Boychuk play when he was younger. My dad pointed it out to me, and I have only seen Boychuk when he was in the NHL but I can see similarities.

Blacker's game was quite offense in the juniors, but he has (and is slowly) adapting into a mobile, strong, hard-nosed and heavy hitting defenseman in the AHL. He needs to continue to work on his positioning and gain additional strength to play defense at the next level. He has some offensive skills, although they have not produced much at the AHL level.

Thanks guys, hopefully you have some input
