A player demands his size and experience, but Canucks also competes.
Johnson: "He played for a junior tournament last year, and he jumped on that page. I did not see there; I was mainly looking for high school dancers. But seeing him, he has a man, so much jelly and so much skill. Every time he did something in the ice, telling him about it. Our amateur (scouting) team thought we had the chance to shoot him in a few rounds, this shot was worth it. The guy to follow will be interesting. I know where to go. "
