He's only in the NAHL because that's the league that was available. CHL trade deadline had past I am not sure about the USHL. He's with the Texas Tornado and allows Dallas to be in the developmental stage and get him adjusted to North America. I am sure he will be some where else next year.
Reports from here are good. he was scoreless with little ice time his first 3-4 games. Tornado is not real good this year. One report I read suggests he is the best player on the ice most nights. he will be in Iowa/Idaho next year.
