That's not the point. Guys who don't score in juniors definetly won't score in the NHL. And you have to have SOME semblance of scoring to play in the NHL. I just don't see him being able to play a regular shift in the NHL and contribute. Guys who scored similar rates to him in their junior careers and played in the NHL are limited to Hordichuk, Boogaard, Moen and Matt Kassian. If he turns into Moen that's awesome. But chances are he'll be a hard working 3rd liner in OKC for 3 years then not resigned and we will have wasted a contract spot on him.

As noted above his contract spot is better used on Gernat, Bigos or Reider.
