Congrats to Paddy.

He also won a USHL championship with the Omaha Lancers.

He should have stayed with DU. He might have had an NCAA title this year, and still could have signed early enough to get his NHL appearance and his AHL Calder Cup.

Paddy had a terrible year. His weakness really showed against the MEN in the AHL. That is why he sat most of the playoffs. He needs to get a man body to play with men. Lots of natural talent.
