That combo of size and speed is hard to match. Now that our local team is no longer in the USHL, I don't get to see the NTDP several times a year like I used to, but the video I've seen of him is that he seems to have solid hands and a nice handle in addition to the size and speed. He could easily be a solid top-6 C or even a power forward winger for the Bruins. 18-year-olds are hard to project. Brandon Carlo, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Krejci were all second-round picks who were passed over by almost *every* NHL team (and Torey Krug wasn't even drafted ... by either the USHL or the NHL). All have been key pieces on Stanley Cup finalists.
