Sounds like he's got a lot going for him; available ice time and a supportive brother. Get him on the ice as much as he can handle it. You can be his coach there and work on stops/starts/explosive sprints and all the basics. And don't forget that just because he appears to be a forward that he shouldn't also know how to skate backwards. Make sure he can do good smooth crossovers both forwards and backwards.
Work on skating. If he can't do that, he can't go anywhere.
