He looked to be that with a nice performance with a couple of goals in the Q’s win in the first leg of the Subway Super Series in Gatineau this week. In Sherbrooke though, he looked flat and lacked the speed to give Russia defenders much of a problem. As one scout said: “A good junior and Hockey Canada-type player, but if he makes the roster that doesn’t mean he’s a NHL prospect. He doesn’t do anything well enough to project him as anything other than a journeyman.”
I still like him, but lets not all get too carried away with him. I havent seen the kind of bite out of him that Gallagher has. Without it, i dont think Gallagher would have ever succeeded in the NHL.
Doesn't do anything well enough? He has hockey sense up the wazoo.
