Hope this kid has practised that much because he's madly in love with the sport and not because he has parents hellbent on having a millionaire NHL player son. He's really good though, wonder where he'll be in a few years.
Way too early to talk about the draft or nhl potential or anything but I will say that his skating technique is absolutely filthy for someone so young... smooth, calm, almost effortless strides and transitions and excellent on his edges.. I guess he can stickhandle a little bit too
He has some darn nice skating ability. The way he's able to maneuver his skates on his edges shows that he has a lot of leg strength already and seems Crosby-like in the way he's able to do that. Obviously too early to tell his NHL potential but he has a nice headstart.
