Unless he has the ability to bend it like Beckham, I doubt anybody from the UK is going to know he exists... minus the few members on here :P

The profile of the game is on the up at the moment, but honestly no-one out with the hardcore fans that follow the NHL would any clue who he is!

Guy will be a huge star there 21 pts in 11 games is just crazy.
How good is that league compared to the KHL; SEL, NLA ?

Nowhere near lol, probably comparable to ECHL or the Danish/Dutch leagues, little blast from the past Nathan Robibson currently plays for Nottingham he has 8 points in 12 games.

In that period where he scored those 21 points out own Drew Miller managed 30 in 23games

I've not seen him play but an 18 year old who goes undrafted and then earns an ELC 3 months later must be doing something right. Adds depth to GR/Toledo and who knows could be a great find. It's not like a minor league ELC breaks the bank, always worth a punt.

Not positive but I think it might be only college players because you are forced to wait to sign them if you want them to keep playing college.  

I'm sure it's only for unsigned first round draft picks

That's how these contracts go. Over payment at the start, bargains by the end. 

Sums up my feelings exactly, a contract that he can grow in to. Also retain his rights beyond end of contract, big 3 years ahead for him and wings!
Also, we should use this as a guide for the type of money Gus stands to earn in the off-season next year. Would guess he'd earn more.
