I asked Brent Peterson (who I believe is still a part owner of the Winterhawks) at the Preds' meet the team party about Leipsic (and seth Jones, to a lesser extent).
He said the organization obviously loves him and almost took him where they took Colton Scissons in the second round, and were thrilled he was still available. Said that if he was comparing him to a current NHL player, Brad Marchand was a good comparison.
He won't score at an elite level in the NHL, but he might put up 20 goals while being a terror to play against.
