Just watched a highlight reel of him on Youtube. Granted, it's a highlight reel, but he did some things there that I've really only seen a few players be able to do. The way he brushes off checks is exactly the way Datsyuk does it. They kinda of come at him and he just rolls around it. When the players try to grab him as he's blowing by, he just pushes the puck forward and reaches like Datsyuk does so often to get around guys. Never stops moving his feet.
If he can continue to do that in the NHL? His speed and hands are sexy. I wanna see this kid in action.
