Even if that's the case, it seems like a weird way for management to express that sentiment. I guess I'm not on the inside so I don't know anything for certain but it's definitely a weird gesture/decision.

Agree. It's certainly an odd gesture to give a guy who just held out a letter but I suppose weirder things have happened before.

Any update on his play this years? Statisticaly he look good with 19pts in 25 games.

I still surprise that no one take a 7 rounder on him.

Not very impressive considering what he was suppose to be, especially as an overager.

Wouldn't surprise me if he made the NHL. But I think he's one of those kids who will bounce around from team to team and a non factor for a playoff team.

He is not an overager - he has a 95 birthdate. His brother is an OA this year.

Saw him tonight. Still has good hands and great vision. Hasn't got much faster. Just a solid WHL player right now.

Yeah I echo these comments, looks like Josh Winquist 2.0.

Comes with a bit more controversy than Josh, but yes. I don't know how Josh gets points, but he does.

What's the story behind him? Was touted as a high first round pick a few years ago.

I believe he had issues with the Prince George organization and demanded a trade during his draft year. They weren't able to facilitate a trade so he left the team and played in the SJHL.

Because Winquist is a great finisher with a very quick release. Not really the same as Alex who is more of a playmaker IMO.
