Anyone heard of him? If not, I guess you will soon. He just turned 16 a few days ago and has 5 pts in his first 2 games in Major Junior. He's getting quite a bit of hype out in Eastern Canada (he was selected 1st overall in the draft earlier this year).

He's getting comparisons to Crosby as well. Now, I think the comparisons to Crosby and all the hype have a lot to do with where's he's from and where he has played. He's from Cole Harbour, NS, played Bantam AAA for the Cole Harbour Red Wings (same as Crosby) and went to Shattuck Saint Mary's boarding school (Same as Crosby).

So, he looks to be a good player so far, but he's probably geeting more hype than deserved just because of all of that. Let's see what happens in the next two years though.

This kid has been dubbed the next Crosby for a long time now, almost a year. Most hockey fans should have heard of him by now. I won't get into the ridiculous hype and expectations being put on him but every hockey fan should probably know his name already. TSN did some features on him a few months ago.
