I thought he showed pretty good instincts reading the play, too. I still don't think he's much in the way of an NHL prospect, to be honest, but you could see that he works to find open space and shooting position when the puck is being controlled cleanly, and he seemed to be able to read when to leave his open ice to come over and support as 3rd guy on the puck or soften up and get in passing lanes. Should be a pretty good AHLer, but I still haven't seen enough to consider him a full-time NHL option any time soon (good one-timer, obviously). Just aren't that many guys in the big show that he'll be able to outwork.
