He needs to work hard, play hard, score some points and he'll soon be on the 1st or 2nd line.
Ambühl only once came close from a point per game average in the NLA, he's far from being the best current Swiss offensive player, let alone the best in decades. He's primarily a defensive player.

Still, I'm surprised his coach doesn't trust him into a better role. Hard to show what you can do on an AHL 4th line.
