Being 25 yrs old has nothing to do with this matter. Like I said, have you ever seen someone play on the first powerplay unit and 4th line LW? I will be highly surprised if Read plays on the 4th line. And its not about early expectations. Lavy has shown, if you can put up points, you will play. In this case Read has 2 points in 4 games.

He averaged 13mins a game.

He pretty much worked on the defensive aspect of his game last year. It paid off for him as he looks well seasoned this year.
Before Dobberhockey went to pay to review, it showed that Seguin played around 3-5% of the time on the 4th line. Thats a good chunk (it shows linemmates). Checked it for an argument during the summer.
