When he was called up last year, a lot of people were left scratching their heads. Including me. In a time where the team needed offense, and fast, the club calls up a 20 year old who is scoring below .5pts/g in the AHL? Since he's come to Ottawa, though, he's looked like a star. In the first game he played it was clear we might have a diamond in the rough here. He brought an element of energy and swagger to the team, and helped out a lot defensively. He's since shown he can be a dangerous player in this league. Every time I watch him I come away really impressed. He's a workhouse and a gem on the penalty kill. He can use his offensive skillset, along with his defensive IQ to get the puck and prevent the opposing team from touching it. He uses his speed and creativity to create so many scoring chances a game. He's got a sweet set of hands. In the last game, he showed off his one-timing ability, which we hadn't seen in Ottawa yet. Our powerplay actually lacks some one-timing power, although MacArthur seems like he's got a decent one. Anyways, yeah. Pageau looks like a star at the young age of 20. He could still make improvements, but he's one of the players that seems like he's one of your best players every single night.
