?????? He's already had a few OHL fights? I saw one, and he did fine..certainly didn't lose. Knows how to protect himself. A little early to call him marshmallow soft.

He's got some learning to do on the fighting front as it's not been an environment he's used to, but he's a smart kid, and not afraid, and he'll have great mentors in London. Given the style of play he employs (hitting as often as he can), he will get in some scraps this season. He's big, strong, and smart enough to hold his own, perhaps even win a couple with takedowns.

I personally don't think he'll be a great and prolific fighter, but certainly not as adamant one way or another as yourself..time will tell. He looks to have enough skill to be a top six forward, and they are more valuable on the ice than in the penalty box. Lucic averages 5 or 6 fights per year..not like he's scrapping every game.
