    And yet, according to the announcers, he had played only 4+ minutes in the game up until that point.

    It was a great play, hope he keeps those instincts. The Dman there was so surprised, but it was all skill to catch up to that puck off the touch.

    Look again . . .
    Note how quickly he goes to his backhand and shoots, all in 1 motion---You can barely see it, it's so fast.
    I've heard his hands are special. This confirms it.

    He's still filling our his physique/strength, but I think his upside is damn good.
