Reasonable estimation would be:
2-4 years college, followed by 1-3 years of AHL depending on how far he progresses and if he progresses.
Goalies are weird and their development can be quite crazy. Either way, having a chance for a great one is awesome.
Honestly, I've watched this kid all season. UML does a great job shot blocking but this kid has been absolute beast in the net. I wouldn't bother rushing him. Alot of raw talent there for sure. After this year, I'd think he comes out at the end of next season, shouldn't stay more than that IMO. After this year, 3 year plan is my opinion. 1 more year in college, maybe two, followed by a year in the A assuming he plays well and has continued his development.
Hellebuyck has the size of an NHL goalie and has a good shot at carrying this team to the national championship. Personally you might have gotten a steal here boys. I know some picked him as a sleeper due to his size and coming out of nowhere, but I'm very impressed as he just blanked my UNH Wildcats.
