This really is almost not a news story. the contract is pretty much standard for a first round pick so it could have been signed 3 months ago, today or a year from now and it would look the same.
I assume he'll spend another year in Junior, but I get the feeling we're rushing our prospect once again.
He's going to be rushed into the NHL like Bourdon probably will. This team needs to sit back and let its prospects develop. Not everyone is NHL ready at 19.
