    He's 18 the NHL is a quantum leap from the CHL. I'm not saying this guy isn't gonna be good but to expect him to be an impact NHL defenseman who can stick right out of the gate seems premature.

    I like the kid a lot, but my post was more tongue n cheek for us Hawks fans...our defense was bad last year, the kid has skill, but the potential for him to earn a spot without any free agent upgrades is pretty massive due to lack of current blue line talent..unless our coach Q ****s things up again!!

    Yeah the team's been doing well with drafting. Sikura will be on the roster next season and Tuulola, Carlsson and Hillman will play their first full season in Rockford. Mitchell, Soderlund and Barratt are other strong prospects in the pipeline.

    Blame Mark Kelley. He's good at his job.

    With an 8-week injury to Connor Murphy, it looks pretty likely that Jokiharju will make the team out of camp.

    Yup he's guaranteed a spot now. He was paired with Keith in training today so hopefully they'll work well together.

    I'm really high on this kid.

    Will be pretty awesome for him to start off n a pair with Keith.
