He had a bit of a down tick in goals and points (11-32) in his sophomore campaign but did slightly outpace his previous efforts in assists (21) in fewer appearances.
The power forward style player also skated a couple more games (9) with the parent club last season and got himself another NHL goal in the process.
He was recently summoned for his first game of 2015/2016 with the big club and played 16 shifts for 10:58 of total ice with 2 shots on net, 1 hit and 2:37 of power play time.
With injuries to starters, he could find himself staying up for some extended time, especially if he can produce on the score sheet.
The 22-year old is set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the current campaign and will likely be a no brainer to extend for at least another look.
