I know most (including myself) are more excited about the recent draft picks like Cousins and Laughton but Akeson is having another good year in the AHL. Considering he hasn't really had much to work with (especially last season) i think his numbers are fairly impressive. In 51 games he's put up 44 pts w/ 14 goals (thats a .863 ppg pace compared to .724 ppg last yr). That matching his high in goals from last year in 25 less games. He didn't really get to play with Schenn or Couturier much as he spent the beginning of the season in the ECHL but since rejoining the phantoms it seems like the whole offense runs through him. He's still pretty young at 22 yo and has really improved his play in his own zone this year and considering it's only his 2nd year pro and his improvement in all zones of the ice, i imagine he'll be on the short list of call-up in the near future.
