Anyone think that we'll be seeing him next season? I doubt they would risk calling him up in the last 10 games of the season, but hopefully next season we might see him.

Having seen plenty of Acolatse as a Thunderbird, I love the kid. He's got so much heart. Good luck to him!

Which reminds me that I need to start going to Silvertips games again. Been too long.

I noticed that he is only 5-11 but has a lot of PIM's. Is he pretty physical, hard-hitting? Do you think his game can scale to the NHL level?

Favorite prospect right now. Can't wait to see him up with the big boys.

More likely that not, he is AHL fodder.

He was very physical and hard hitting for the Tbirds. Also a very willing combatant, lots of fighting majors. I remember one game I went to that he got two fighting majors and a double-minor roughing (which should have been a third fighting major but the refs let him off the hook for some reason). He was also very strong and tough for his size. Kinda PJ Stock-like.

Love his effort and toughness and heart... I've never thought of him having an NHL skill package though. Could be a 4th line energy winger or bottom pairing defenseman, maybe. He could prove me wrong, though, and I hope he does. He was a big fan favorite in Seattle (including this fan).

My guess is he is basing it on seeing him play only a handful of times . 210 do you think he has any NHL potential?

In the preseason games I watched, he was the by far the best defenseman imo.

Handled the puck well and had a killer shot.
