Bell plays beyond his young age

Story by Greg Harder, you can find it here.

Interesting quote from Brent Parker in comparing Bell to Barret Jackman:
"He really is a kid that wants to win and has that look; you can see it in his eyes," noted the veteran GM. "He probably has better offensive abilities than Barret had. I think Barret was a little better defensively at this age but there are a lot of comparisons in terms of the mental part of it and the physical component too."

I have thought about who to best compare Bell to and Jackman really didn't come into my mind (although thinking about it they are similar). My instant comparison to him ability-wise would be Logan Pyett. Both are offensive minded, both can skat and both can shoot. I really like what Bell brings to the table.
