Not too shabby. Essentially we'd expect this kid to be a
40 pt 15 goal player stepping into the NHL next year and to develop from there. Just as a comparison, here are Bozak and Hanson's 21 year old NCAA seasons:
So Tyler Brenner outproduced both of them in the NCAA as a freshman, though the ACA is an easier conference than the WCHA or CCHA. Tyler Brenner seems like a decent pickup. He's almost certainly Marlies bound and will get a good shot to make an impact with Nazem Kadri on the Leafs and Joe Colborne still a little slow after his concussion. Enjoy a video of his:
