Although you didn't include him last year, AE5 was the most impressive rookie, so with a year of development it's not surprising that he tops the list against his birth year cohort. You mention the step he took forward in this year's playoffs. Interestingly, I think he really started to take off in last year's playoffs when they had him playing 30+ minutes a night of great hockey. The Colts have incredible confidence in this young man, and deservedly so.

You're absolutely right, the sky is the limit. I can't wait to see what he does next year. He's already the Chara of the OHL...if he grows lookout...
