Last season in E****y's first 21 games of the year the Oil Kings did not lose one game not saying it was all because of him, but is a very important player, but we are both allowed are own opinions
He played in the U-18 tournament. I'm not trying to dismiss his junior accomplishments I just think this style of player is a long shot when it comes to making the NHL. He could prove me wrong though and that wouldn't be a bad thing.
