We are always stacked with guys that have magical hands in HS/juniors but not elite skating. That’s why some guys can’t make the transition to college and fizzle out when they get to campus, or stay in the ECHL/AHL. His skills are good enough to prevent that, but we should get at least two years out of him because of the skating.

I am no draft expert. I don’t pay attention to recruits very much before they come to the Gophers. But your last sentence sums up my thoughts when I read the skills summary. It appears he has room to improve and some time in college may benefit Chaz and the Gophers.

I know there we concerns by some that he may never step foot on campus.
