  1. I remember him well from the North Stars , strong player, very smart . Great addition for the Birds .

    1. had the pleasure of watching this young man from a very young age, an absolutely incredibly, naturally athletic kid. Only question mark is his desire, or simply,”does he want to play that shift”. When he does, not a more talented player anywhere near here.
