I like his game. I think too much was made of stats at a lower level. He competed very well amongst NHL talent.

Good to see but he has a long way to go. 1 year in Junior, 1 year in the AHL and then he might be ready. He wasn't a NHL ready draft pick by any stretch of the imagination.

He won't be 20 until April 2019, so unfortunately he won't be eligible to play in the AHL until the 2019-20 season.

Next season he is either in the NHL or back to Junior hockey again, Grand Rapids isn't an option. I feel like he might be in the NHL just because he'll be in that weird place where he is too good for going back to the WHL, but not AHL eligible. Same thing they did with Jiri Fischer years ago.

This rule kind of sucks, should just be one year after being drafted for everyone. But if the league is serious about shifting the draft agree to 19, that would fix that issue.

Anyway, Rasmussen was always a solid player and a good prospect, rated as a first rounder, just debatable as worthy of a top 10. He just needs to prove that the criticisms of his game were overblown. Hope he does well, he's a Red Wing now.

Can he move into the AHL mid-season or does his DOB block that for the entire season?

He's blocked from the AHL beyond post-season stuff after his WHL team is eliminated
