I wouldn't say he imposed his will at the U18s, but he was fairly physical and had a great stick. His puck skills and puck-moving ability is what surprised me the most. He's much better in those areas than I thought he'd be.

As far as the Tyler Myers comparison, I don't know. The more I see of comparisons, the more I start to value them less. What I will say is that I think a team could fall in love with him and take him in the top-15.
I for one can only go by "reports". But this 17 year old young man intrigues me. He may be a reach at 11. But if he is all that then I would not mind the Flyers picking him.
