    Anyone following the BCHL knows that he is off to a crazy hot start. He has 4 goals and 11 assists in his first 11 games. He stands around 6`3 215, is said to be fast, physical and an excellent PP quarterback. I was just wondering if anyone has some opinions on his play so far, his weaknesses and his NHL potential.

    I've not seen him play, although I've talked to people who have. I don't want to say too much having never seen him myself, but I will say that his NHL potential is pretty limited. More likely an AHLer, although with good size and speed anything is possible. He has been talking with the Giants about moving up and playing WHL, but a friend of mine who is friends with him says he doesn't really want to because he has a lot of friends that play on the Eagles with him. Doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to move up midway through your 19 year old year to finally play WHL anyway, if you ask me.
