Right now he is pretty much a wildcard. With all our talent in the A he was forced into a lower line role and didn't produced that much. But at the time most of the guys were up in Tampa, he was one of the few guys able to score and showed promise.
I think he will break out next year and might be ready within 2 years. Therefore being a callup in the 14-15 season and a fulltime NHLer in 2015-16.

I think he will pan out as good two-way 2nd line center. On a deep team 3rd line center (like Johnson most likely in Tampa next year)
