It's silly to speculate about whether or not Laughton should be given next year in the OHL at this point. He'll have a full off-season of conditioning, a full training camp, and 9 games to show what he's got.

If he looks like he belongs and contribute for more than 10 mins / night he'll be up with the big club and rightfully so. If he looks like he needs more seasoning, he'll be back to the OHL. I personally think he'll stick because of how good he looked in his tryout this year, but I guess we'll see.

Like I said though, it's kind of silly to say what's best for Laughton long term before you even see him in training camp and in the 9 game tryout.

I will say though, I'm excited about Laughton. Think he could be a very nice piece for us. He's been an entirely different player after his time w/ the big club:

Before: 32games, 13goals, 16assists, 29 points, +4
After: 17games, 10goals, 13assists, 23 points, +18
