March 2020 – After his rights were acquired in October by the Ottawa Senators in a minor trade for Jack Rodewald, the Colorado College winger has seen improvement in his game at the NCAA level as far as offensive production. He has exploded as a goal scorer putting up 23 goals this season after never topping six in his previous three seasons in college. At 23 years old, he has been able to push his way around and have his way with college competition to some extent. Even with the 23 goals, however, he still hasn’t even attained point-per-game status in the NCAA this season. His game is fairly predicated on the fact that he is one of the older players in college hockey and that doesn’t bode well for his future prospects of signing a deal with the Senators. I wouldn’t put too much stock in the rise in goals this season as it is unlikely that it translates to the NHL-level. There is a chance, although not a guarantee, that he signs an AHL deal out of college and could extend his hockey career through the minors. Tony Ferrari
