Actually he did.

Stat surfing doesn't show you on ice development.

He came to BC as a primarily one-dimensional speedy scorer with grit.

Now he'd a legitimate two way player, that plays in all situations.

He was a top performer in the WJC his two years in the tournament. He showed flashes in the Men's WC. And every big game BC has had the last two years he was one of the top impact payers.

"Didn't improve" is what stat surfers say. He still put up double digit goals and passed 20 points. In NCAA hockey, in this era, is not bad.

Besides anything else, he still put up more points in less games then the year prior. While continuing to develop his two way game, id say that's improvement.
