Keith McCambridge has liked what he's seen so far out of Mark Scheifele: "He's played in high-pressure games and he's obviously played a lot of hockey this year. He's done really well. We just wanted him to go out and play his game and adjust to the pro level. His first game was good, his second game was REALLY good. He puts the work in every day, he's upbeat and he looks like he's enjoying himself right now." [WFP]
