Well like I said in my post above his ability to handle NHLers on the boards was my biggest concern. I just had a good feeling he was ready, physically because of Kadri, who is weaker than him IMHO.

I already knew he was a heady player in his own end, but I didn't know how long it would take for him to "get it".

I'm just waiting for him to be confident enough to dangle the puck. That will be fun.
