The 6’2″ 210 lbs. forward was a New York Islanders‘ 5th round pick in the 2011 draft (#125 overall).
He plays with size out there and in his 2nd game he picked up his first professional goal in the team’s 3-2 shootout loss over the weekend.
The Islanders might be taking a long look at him in next year’s training camp before deciding whether to have him join their ranks or send him back to his junior team for one more season. Our prediction is that won’t be an easy decision to make.
