His skills are a perfect fit for the center position
Faceoffs. He stunk in limited action last year, winning 5 and losing 24, and it would be a major issue.

Defense. He's mediocre to bad defensively, and centers have the most defensive responsibility out of the forwards.

Corner battles. He loses the majority of them, and lost defensive corner battles would result in quality scoring chances against.
