Probably a bit early to discuss one and done with Casey, but if continues to progress at the rapid rate that he has, they will have a conversation with Casey and his Family. Not to put any pressure on Casey but he is an outstanding prospect he embodies everything that we believe a player needs to bring on The ice but more importantly he embodies everything it means to be a Sabre off the ice in his character, work ethic, personality and he believes they he has just scratched the surface of his potential.
