Some of the goals I have seen him score

showed that he had hands. I think he is focusing on creating a niche for himself within the organization. He is doing the things that the organization is short on:
hustle, hitting, energy, PKing. If he can establish himself, gain a foothold on the NHL squad, I think you will see his game evolve more as he gets comfortable. If this kid contnues and actually carves out a position, I could see him as the captain. Maybe a poor man's Dale Hunter, only cleaner as a player, but just as hard nosed.
