Sure it won't hurt him to play 9 games here, but if that is the only reason, to reward him for a good camp, I don't think it is enough of a reason to complicate the business side here. His contract will make it tough to get in at/under 50 to start unless you make a move. And that move would likely be a defenceman. Then once his 9 games are up and you return him to Junior you have a hole to fill. Play him through camp and return him just before the regular season starts. That should be a good taste of the NHL for an 18 year old. And it will let his contract slide for a year. His highly touted teammate just got returned from the Leafs. It is time for him to get serious about his season in Rimouski and work on his game at that level.
