    Because he is a junior in high school and could likely go back for his senior year, AFAIK.

    I could totally be wrong though.

    Read in the Strib (and of course now can't find it) that he has visited UW, UND, & SCSU and may also take visits to UMN and OSU.

    Skating...

    He is not the fastest skater out there, but he does use his body to protect the puck well against high schoolers. IMO, his skating will have to improve considerably if he's going to be a good college player let alone an effective player at the professional level.

    He did score some clutch goals for the Thunderhawks this season. However, you have to question his stats a little considering the competition the Thunderhawks play that may have helped him inflate his stats a bit. They played some tough city schools and he had some good games and some where he was a non-factor. IMO, he was drafted where he should have been.

    Yet, am I really happy with this pick? No, not really. Although I guess he fit our "at least one Minnesota High School" player quota this team has had since Fletcher arrived.

    This doesn't come as a surprise, since you aren't particularly happy with anything.

    There are no noteworthy defenders taken after Peterson in the 2013 draft, at least thus far.

    I have no earthly idea who that guy is talking about.

    Kinda odd that his +/- is only 2.

    We rarely track +/- on the Hockey Hub, assuming that's what you're looking at, so that's probably just from one or two games.

    It should be mentioned that his 67 points came in just 27 games, also.
