He was out late in the game for the final ninety seconds, and appeared to tie the game - but was disallowed because of 'intent to blow the whistle'.

His team is coached by Brent Sutter - Team Canada WJHC coach. Likely a longshot to make the team, but his performance bodes well in any case. He was also named Team WHL MVP.
Nice to see this young man improving year to year. You just never know how a 17 or 18 year old will turn out in three or four years will they are selected after the second round. This team still needs in my opinion a speedy scoring winger.
