It's gotta tough on him. Especially stats wise. I could only hope this would further his excitement and transition into the NHL. After playing with a lack lustre Sea Dogs team I'd be jacked if and when the NHL comes back.
As for the stats. A clear indication is his points and plus minus. Last year he had 72 points in 37 games and a plus 50. This year he's got 22 points in 17 games and a minus 7.. The +/- is a true tell for me. Lesser team = less points & +/- rating.
