You can`t judge a player by his stats. He obviously has something that the other prospects don`t or he wouldn`t be so hyped.

Also, he is playing in the DEL part time, and they dont want him playing there full time because it would hinder his development. They would probably much rather him get top 6 minutes in the tier-2 league than him play 5 minutes a game in the DEL.
