In the playoffs he has currently 5G 9A in 12 matches and is 4-5'th for Portland Winterhawks (and best rookie in WHL) after the Rattie-Leipsic-Petan 1'st line trio.
Ahh, well it would be fun to have another 1st rounder, but I just wouldn't bet my money on it.
I havent's seen enough of him to properly evaluate his skillset, but he must be doing something right. Top rookie scorer in a tough league. And yes Portland are a great team, but he is not on the powerhouse line. He is infact the powerhouse himself on the 2nd line. Petan is a great prospect, but has had the benefit of great linemates. He is smaller than Bjork, but I could see him as a late 1st rounder but most likely he will also go in the 2nd with Bjork.
