NHL upside is another thing, although Phoenix may be the right team for him.

But having seen that kid play last year, I can see him succeeding at a higher level than the OHL. Perhaps a PPG may be a little over-optimistic, but he's shown nothing but a solid progression since being drafted. Kessy was unheard of at the time of the trade and he's still a relative unknown. It'll take a whole lot to change that.

BTW, Portland is now Arizona's AHL affiliate, not San Antonio...
