It's a nice thing to say "He leads the habs in hits" but what is the point in hitting if it never amounts to anything. He is still a soft player and wouldn't hit if the coach would not ask him to.
Separating people from the puck is not the only reason to hit. First it wears down the opposition, second they start making their play sooner to avoid a hit and make a bad decision. There is no downside to finishing your checks.
