I've been watching this kid develop with the Halifax Mooseheads over the past couple years and I think it's finally time he started making his way onto peoples 'watch lists'. I'm still not convinced he's worth picking up in any but the deepest of leagues but stay tuned....
He's benefiting greatly from running the Mooseheads lethal PP this year but he's certainly not just along from the ride, he's a driving force. In 14GP he's 1G + 16A!
My major beef with the kid is that he's very reluctant to let his shot go from the point, almost always electing to fake the shot and then dish off. It's worked well for him so far but it won't last forever. On those odd occastions I've actually seen him shoot it's left me even more confused because the kid can unload!
He's become a very responsible d-man, his puck distribution skills are solid, he's listed at 6'5" 225 and and he seems to have a good mind for the game. Cap that all off with a very good attitude and I'm really starting to picture him in a SJ jersey a few years from now.
