his stats do look good on the whale but evryone seems to draw their own conclusions about small scorers.
Sedlak is actually ranked lower than JAM in Hockey's Futures.
By the way, here's his profile from hockey prospectus
7. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault, Left Wing
2010-11 Ranking: N/A
Date of birth: 12/27/1990
Statistics: 76 GP, 24 G, 64 P (Connecticut-AHL)
Acquired: Free agent
Marchessault is a skilled little guy who scouts describe as a "fun player to watch" due to his ability to make plays and the high level of energy he plays with. After being undrafted, he burst onto the scene and turned heads as a rookie in the AHL, ending his first season tied for 10th in league scoring. He has above-average puck skills, solid speed, and his work ethic shows up in both ends. He pressures well and is also the kind of player who hustles back on defense and can be an effective penalty killer despite his size because of his intangibles. He's got good awareness off the puck.
Marchessault's size is his major issue. Despite his skill set, he may not be dynamic enough at his size to be an NHLer. He's skilled, but not extremely skilled and doesn't have top-end speed.
He could be a top-nine player and potentially a fringe second liner, but he also may never become an NHL regular.
