Good numbers in the ECHL again this season. He had an underwhelming AHL audition last year, this is his time to show he can stick in the AHL. 46 points and +27 in 72 career ECHL games. Plus his size isn't an issue (6'2, 195lbs) and he brings some physicality. I think he is ready to make the jump.

Blain just turned 22 a couple weeks ago so he is still young, but will need to push his way up to a second-pairing spot with power play time in the AHL next year in order to have a shot at an NHL career. It is really a numbers game, and guys who are signs vs draft picks seem to have a harder go of it (Blomstrand getting called up instead of Pacan for example).

He doesn't exactly have stiff competition. Outside of Corrado most of Utica's D are older (Biega, Huskins) or similar long shot prospects (Sauve, Tommernes, Andersson).
