Just curious, for those of you who have seen players go from youth hockey to D1 stars (and possibly NHLers), when did you start noticing they were going to be something special?

I first saw Phil Housley in the South St. Paul youth system. If I recall, he was playing center at the time. One could certainly see that there was already something special about him. When he joined the high school team, Wooger moved him to defense, so he had the entire game in front of him. Would have been interesting if he’d even had a “One and done” career at the “U”.
