I watched the kid play and he projects out to be a good player. Good size already, nice shot but he still has a way to go with the technical / coachable aspects of playing the position. By far not the most advanced defensemen in local high school hockey in the past few years but with a little coaching his game should pick up. Other local, less than ready, (and undersized) defensemen have advanced on to the USHL and are making central scouting lists.
The UMass kid or a different kid?
Considering it might have been a step down from the public school he was going to it was never in doubt.
