    Don’t get too attached to that #18 if he has aspirations of playing for the Hawks one day. :)

    I thought the same thing. Grin. I recall how weird it was seeing Alec Richards in 35 playing goal for them. Of course his stick was in the wrong hand to be THE 35.

    Hull, those first three questions are what I was thinking. So as you state. 1) You haven’t seen him play. 2) You do not know what competition he played against. 3) You do not know how he has matured or how much hockey knowledge he has learned.
    My logic would be let’s see how this 23 year old plays then we can see what we got.
