Can't say I did. But I did also say "pro ranks." Playing great against Jr competition is fantastic. That just up's his stock, but I'd like to see him in WBS before claiming he'll be some sort of incredible pro. I think he'll be a great defenseman for us, either way.

Yep, no guarantees. But you should make a point of catching him at the WJCs this year - he's a pleasure to watch, and I haven't liked one of our prospects this much since Letang came up through the ranks (though obviously a very different style player).

In the playoffs last year we would've killed for exactly the sort of defenseman he projects to be. Composed, competitive, efficient, and adds nasty as required.

I wouldn't be surprised if he followed in Letang's footsteps and was named Canada's captain this year, either.
