The kid has natural raw talent, reads the ice very well and can skate. People have been comparing his play-making ability to a young Datsyuk. He's won the offensive forward award 3 times this season for the Western Conference.
Yeah, his "size" has very little to do with why he's undrafted, Junior C seems to be a much more likely reason. If the Condors want to toss him a contract, fine, but this isn't the kind of kid NHL contracts get wasted on.
