He's from Anchorage, Alaska, and the closest he's ever been able to play close to home was Tri-City in the WHL. He played out there to be close to his family and to stay in shape during the lockout.

I think you're being generous by saying that a kid will be drafted out of this league by 2020. If a player is good enough to be drafted into the NHL, I think they would be better served by playing major juniors. The quality of play will need to be markedly improved across the league before it is competative enough for a player to stay there and still be drafted.
