    I'm interested to know how the kid is doing so far in Blainville. I didn't know much about him coming to this season but it looks like he's doing quite well in the QMJHL this season. Big kid, 6'4 216 per eliteprospects from Latvia.

    Saw him play this week but I haven't noticed him much. Looks lanky, played on the PP and was able to hit the net with his shot.

    I too saw him play this week. I would categorize him as a 'project'. He's very lanky, seems to have a lot of upside, but is extremely raw. He fell down once in awkward fashion, with nobody around him. But he also had a huge hit in the game that got him noticed for sure.

    He has good wheels, pretty good mobility overall. He played on the right side (as a lefty shot), and didn't look out of place there.

    I don't think his offensive upside is very high, personally, but he seems like a shutdown guy down the road. An NHL comparable? Maybe Jonathan Ericsson?

    He's definitely worth keeping an eye on, imo.
