His boxscore numbers are certainly more impressive than Klefbom's
0G 3A -10.

Is Klefbom getting tougher minutes or is Gernat just adjusting better (perhaps due to having played the last 2 years in NA). Marincin looks like he may have a future in the NHL. Gernat too? Or too early to tell.
Can't comment on his play with the Barons, but in his time with the Oil Kings Gernat always had superlative offensive instincts, so it's not all that surprising (but still encouraging) he's found his way onto the score sheet in the AHL. As far as NHL potential goes, he has a lot of refining to do in his own end, but it's certainly doable for him to make a go of it as a 4/5/6 PP specialist with the outside chance of steady top4 duty if he makes serious defensive strides.
