he'll probably bounce around hartford and charlotte to begin the year, before solidifying a spot on the wolf pack about 25 games in.
This is pretty close to what I suspect will happen. He struggled to keep up with the pace of play during his ATO in Hartford last spring, and he's facing even more competition this season. So it wouldn't surprise me to see him spend some time in Charlotte.
Do you really think he'd play in Charlotte? Perhaps he really has his heart set on playing in North America this year, but otherwise, I wouldn't be surprised if he'd find himself a gig in Europe rather than go to the ECHL.
