This. He needs to play. Another player where it made no sense to send him back to Juniors for an overage season. He is physically ready as far as the rough portion of the game. He needs to work on his footwork and lateral mobility and get minutes.

St. Croix was the exact opposite. He needs time to physically develop. Sending him back to Juniors would have been pointless as his skill is heads and shoulders above most players in Juniors and has been for well over a year.

Similar situations, different reasoning.
