Mitch's game came a LONG way this season. Playing along side elite talents like Ryan Strome and Mark Scheifele most of the season really seemed to be key in Theoret's development.

I thought his increased point production could have been attributed to playing along side the stars mentioned above, but Theoret played his best hockey late in the season in Barrie and in the post season when he led one of the best lines in the OHL Playoffs.

The Islanders WILL sign him. (still holding out hope for Kichten, but that seems bleak at this point).
While playing with Strome and Ritchie may have buffered his totals some, I think increased role/ IT is the big reason he finally started producing. Hard to be .75-1PPG if you're a bottom 6 forward with very little special teams play. He got ice and was pretty consistent all year with it.
