I mean there's no guarantees but you should at least be intrigued. He has a lot of tools at his disposal. The big question is how much offensive upside does he have? I think he's got more than his point totals would indicate and he'll have 2-3 years to develop offensively. If he continues to develop there, he's fantastic value at this spot. I also wouldn't really classify him as a late riser, as in he didn't come out of nowhere. He's always been well respected as a prospect. He just played an extra year of midget, so he had no exposure as a 16 year old and there was the lingering question of how he'd handle the next level, which was exasperated when he missed the Hlinka last summer for Team USA due to injury. This was his first year in the USHL and he had a great season. He obviously improved too, but it also eliminated the concern of how he'd do in his first year of high level hockey. At the WJAC this year, he was charged with shutting down Podkolzin, which he did and made it look effortless too. A lot of us USAH followers think he's a strong contender to make Team USA at the WJC.
