This is great for Heemskerk, who hasn't really had a full opportunity to display his talents in the WHL yet, despite entering his 19-year-old season. He wasn't given a starting job until Everett acquired him midway through last season, and much of his time as Everett's starter was during a period when the Tips were bruised, battered and beaten down, thus affecting his numbers. His stats during Everett's playoff series against Tri-City are even less impressive, but they don't do justice to his efforts against the overwhelming Americans. So it's good to see someone still recognized his potential.
