The first time restricted free agent as his entry level deal expired received some reassurance with a new 2-year one-way deal through 2019.
At 23-years old, he’s looking at spending a first full season up in the show but will definitely have to start delivering more on the scoresheet, as should be expected from a high draft selection.

He’s already surpassed his goal mark with 15, tied his assist high at 18, has a new best 33 points and a +9 rating in just over half the AHL games since his rookie campaign.
The 6’2″ 207 lbs. power forward that also fires his fair share of pucks on the net received his big league debut early in the 2015/2016 for a couple of contests and was interestingly returned after his 1st NHL goal.
He stayed with the farm team for the next four months before recently receiving a second summons up to the show and looks like he’s fitting in pretty nicely.
Although he’s yet to add to his totals on the score sheet, he is 100% in the face off dot and adds spark plug energy depth in roughly 10 minutes of ice time, including short-handed situations.
You can expect him to compete for a permanent spot on the parent club next season.
