  1. Liked what I saw from him while he was up. I think he will make for a nice 4th line player in the future.
    It’s never a bad thing for a young player to get 20 minutes a night down in the minors.

  2. Caught in a numbers game. I think he showed enough to see him again with the Hawks at some point.

  3. I don’t know. He definitely competes hard and has good hands and hockey sense, but he is undersized and not especially fast. I think he is a tweener.

  4. I agree, he seems like a tweener to me to. Unless something changes with his skillset, and he is still young enough to develop in some areas. Otherwise, I don’t see any impact coming from Highmore, other than being a serviceable 12th or 13th forward.

  5. Hereismike-agree—great motor, team guy and good skater but bottom 6=perhaps 4th liner that would chip in and he probably will be able to kill penalties. I think he’s OK is the fast dep,t

  6. Highmore is an NHL caliber forward. He was bouncing around the lineup like a super ball. He is a better player with more upside than jurco and kampf.

    I ‘ll believe sikura is the second coming of even versteeg when I see it. Drew leblanc, Matt carey, etc… Who knows? I’m not convinced whatsoever.
