After the first two seasons where he suffered from injuries and personal issues, he's really taken the next step.
Sunday he put in his 5th goal of the year, something he didn't do until the end of January last season. This is a team that doesn't have the offensive depth of the BC teams from the past couple of seasons and needed people to step up. Through only 9 games, he most certainly has (the next hopefully is Destry Straight who scored his 3rd Sunday after scoring 3 all FR year. He's very young so the jump isn't surprising). The improvement goes beyond the scoresheet as simply watching the games he is so much more confident with the puck and using his size.
The easy comparison is to his brother Jimmy who went from 8 goals to 13 to 21 but reality is it usually takes bigger players a longer time to get adjusted to the college game.
The 2nd line of Hayes-Arnold-Straight has been huge in this early season run as BC waits for the lower 2 lines to provide some offensive punch.
