I think Elliott will be fine.
He needs more time in the AHL.
He had a very consistent production increase in the WHL: 40/55/65/81.
Likely the COL brass wants to see similar increase in the AHL.
I think he'll be solid, from what I've seen, but he may be a year or two away (which unfortunately, is farther than what I had predicted too).
He'll be up if COL loses any offensive d-men to injury.
If Erik Johnson goes down, I think we'll see him for sure.
