He's got some pretty decent credentials. WIll his offensive game translate in the NHL?
He reminds me alot of Brendan Morrow. Good skater, good but not great size, a nice skill-set, and a great work-ethic. I wouldn't consider him to have 1st line upside, but IMO he's almost a sure thing to be a key contributer in the top six.
If you look at his stats. 31 games 20 goals 21 assists a +28, 41 PIM, 2PPG, 4SHG, 5GWG, is listed at 6'1 205. But he plays like Deadmarsh did at 190. Much bigger then his line would lead on. Is near impossible to knock of the puck. And never quits. All around team guy with hustle.
From what I've seen of Okposo, I'd say he is a surefire NHLer.
He has all the tools to become an offensive player, but also has the work ethic, grit to fall back on if his offensive game doesn't develop.
Upside: 2nd line 25 goals
Downside: 3rd line 10 goals.
