Outgrown MHL?

He had 35 points in 43 games and 5 points in 10 play-off games before leaving to play in QMJHL next season. Good stats but then again next year in the QMJHL he had 85 points in 59 games and still played a lot there this season (33 games 54 points), so probably at this age he's much more outgrown QMJHL than at that age MHL.

So his situation is not that dissimilar to Kucherov who had outgrown MHL last year (though also had some time in the KHL). Now he's in QMJHL too and well, he's too good for that league too (33 games 63 points). Had he stayed in the KHL he might have been loaned to another KHL team like Gusev or played in CSKA.
