The biggest thing working in Mitch Holmberg's favour is the Tyler Johnson connection. Holmberg plays for the same team as Johnson (Whom, once upon a time, was also an undersized WHL scorer who was passed over in two drafts), was briefly a teammate of Johnson's, who has put up very similar point-total progressions in his career as Johnson. Johnson's emergence this year as a ROTY candidate means that a few NHL teams will be looking for similar finds this summer, and Holmberg fits the Johnson blueprint better than most.

Dan O'Toole: "So if I have this right, only acceptable goal celebration in NHL is to put hands at your sides and then feel shame."
