He'll almost definitely start in the AHL but he is dominating in a pretty strong league now. No reason to think he can't be atleast a bit contributor to the team next season.
I've watched many good players at UND (Toews, Oshie, Parise, Zajac,Blake etc.), and Kristo has some of the best hands I've seen and he can shoot on the fly. He does, however, need to bulk up a little. He has gained some weight in the last year and now dishes out checks instead of receiving them. 25 games in the AHL and he'll adjust to the physical style of the NHL. He has great speed. Kind of reminds me of Dave Tippet when he played, a good 2nd/3rd line forward. Not as reckless as Oshie, but he does get after the puck. Not as fast as Gionta (not many are) but better hands.
