He hasn't looked bad with his ice time. He is still making smart plays, just not the same caliber he was earlier in the year.
I would contribute it to: (in this order)
Being a little worn out (hasn't he played almost as many games this season as a college season would give him? In rapid succession lately, as well, and against guys MUCH better, stronger, faster and meaner)
The rest of the team being brutal
Trying to learn a new system (has to be much harder on a rookie)
Playing 10 minutes a night, with no PP time
Having Asham and Powe as linemates (I mean, lets face it, Powe is now going out of his way to not rack up assists, haha.)
Sending him to the minors would be a mistake, imo.
