I love this pick. I would've taken him in the first. I only saw him at the top prospects game and the last two games of the U18's, but he was unbelievable in each of those games. Tons of effort and skill. He's going to be a favourite.
As I mentioned already, I'm thrilled with this pick. His upside is as high as anyone outside of the top five in this draft, and I think even a year from now, people will be wondering why he didn't go in the first round. Colossal potential here.
He needs to add a lot of strength, but he knows that. He's coming off an impressive QMJHL debut and a great U18 where he showed off his dynamic possession and passing skills. I expect him to explode next year.
