He is much like Drew Shore at that age. He should be considered at the same level.

Here's my order of the same 10 players (not that I'm some expert):

Grimaldi is nowhere near Hobey Baker material this season. Knight has had a much better season and he isn't even in the conversation. Grimaldi has been great this season, but Matheson has been exceptional. He's been his team's best defenseman on a lot of nights as a freshman on what was the #1 ranked team early on in the season. He plays the #1 PP.

Grimaldi didn't have a great WJC, he had a great final game, but for most of the tourney he was very disappointing. He has a serious size deficiency that he has to overcome in order to be successful in the pros. That is something that Shore, Matheson, Petrovic, Howden, etc. don't have to deal with. Petrovic and Howden are very safe prospects that project to be decent NHLers at the very least because of their all around game. Grimaldi has talent that they do not possess, however he also has a good chance of busting.
