Right now, it's going to be tough if I really want to make the team this year. If the team wants me to stay up, I'd love to do that and maybe try to make that team and if not, I'll go to Calgary [in the WHL] and have another good year there. I'm just trying to focus on developing and being the top player I can be and improve and develop as a player.
