    I'm friends with him and he's tearing it up in the WHL pre-season right now. Is there any chance he makes it to the show, or hell, is even drafted? Thanks for the info.

    Not sure if serious.

    But anyways, he has a chance. Great hands, willing to rush the puck and makes great plays out there, scored a highlight-reel goal at the intrasquad game. He has the size, and uses it well. The only thing he lacks in is speed. Other then that, I think he has the potential of getting drafted for sure.

    I've only been to a couple games this season but he seems to be struggling a fair bit in his own zone. That said, with his size, respectable mobility, decent shot, he definitely has a chance. I don't think he's eligible until 2013 anyhow so there's tons of time for development.

    If you're friends with him, wouldn't he be able to tell you about this stuff himself?

    He has a consistency issue.

    If he was really consistent then he might be a mid round in the 1st. his skillset is really good but defensively he seems really lost out there but he has tons of time to develop that part of his game.

    As of now a 2nd round pick, the rest depends on how he develops.

    Well sounds like he retired. Had some personal issues back home.

    Wow, that's a bummer. I wondered what would happen to him after he got traded to Regina, to many d-men.

    Good kid and had great potential. I was upset when they traded him. Best of luck in the future!

    Man he was one guy with quite a good skillset just never developed at all though.
