This is the real deal people.
You saw that too eh? I only watched a handful of games, but wow did he just dominate. It was hard to be believe he still wasn't draft eligible given how much he controlled the pace of play when he was on the ice.

I'd say a Ryan Sutter-esq player in the making. I hope the Oilers aren't in a position to draft him, but if they are he's a no brainer.
