It's good for him to play for a while in the Mestis since he needs to get some good games under his belt. With Jokerit he showed glimpses of talent and potential but was quite hazardous with the puck and most of the time made the wrong decisions. He needs to simplify his game and not always go for the highlight reel moves. He should be back with Jokerit soon if he's able to do that.
And for such a young kid it's really a completely new life experience and wouldn't be suprised if he's going through some home-sickness. Its tough but I'm sure one day he'll benefit from it when he moves on to the NA rinks.
