Illo still adjusting to NCAA game


When the Anaheim Ducks drafted Radoslav Illo in the fifth round (136th overall) of the 2009 NHL Draft, the organization thought it would be getting a potential pure goal scorer.



The Ducks had to be salivating after watching Illo, a Bystrica, Slovakia native, smoothly transition to the North American game with Tri-City of the USHL from 2008 thru 2010. Illo had a knack for finding the back of net in the Tier I junior hockey league, totaling 45 goals and 31 assists in 97 games.

The article is a lot more optimistic than I've ever seen anyone about Illo. But whatever. Raw talent that may or may not put it together. Even if he did pan out, like Paul said it was always as a long term project. So there's still time.
