Something I haven't really said or felt with other undrafted free agents that we've tried recently (or came close to, like that Russian kid from the USHL from last year). I like his skating, he has that "pro burst", he works really well on his edges, protects the puck pretty well, he'll initiate some contact, pretty good release, can get the puck up in a hurry, definitely seems like a shooter...not sure about his vision, seems to be a bit of a DIYer...I want to hear from a couple contacts on the kid and watch a little more of whatever I can find, but I'm not scoffing at this kid so quickly like some of the others...

Not sure exactly, but I have a good feeling about him. I think his skils translate to the structured flow of the the Pro game and I hope that playing with better players will mean he loses the "do it yourself" tendencies. I looked all over the WBS site and can't see anywhere that they list the current roster.
He is very intriguing.
