    So what does he project to become?

    I remember him having a great rookie season in the Q, and then seemed to fall of a cliff as he was coming up through the ranks with LA.

    I'm seeing him as something like a premium 4th liner who can move up to the third if needed. His game reminded me a little bit of Victor Stalberg. Honestly, I'd be a little surprised if he doesn't make the Canes next year, he seems ready and they need size in the lineup.

    Robo - I think you're underselling him a bit. He's got one of the best, if not the best wrist shot on the Checkers. He plays a solidly physical game and skates much better that many originally thought. I think he projects as a middle six RW and between he and Lucas Wallmark probably have the best shots of any forwards on the Charlotte squad of graduating to the big club next season.

    This is good to hear as it was kind of his projection in the first place--middle six winger who can play up if needed. Was always responsible, always took leadership roles at Kings camp, can bang and work in the corners--almost certain to be an NHLer, ultimate ceiling TBD.

    It's still funny to me that this guy weighs like the same as Hedman or Jordan Staal. He's like a tree trunk.

    He’s been lighting it up as of late, looking strong.

    I hope he gets called up, he plays a style the Canes could use
