No, they all look down. Some can do it in glances and some do it exactly like Anisimov does it too often. And many get crushed while they have their heads down. I'm sure you've seen it once or twice... or a thousand times. He'll learn to increase his periphery and awareness and to not get transfixed on the puck in the danger areas. I'm pretty sure he has already focused on that because he is better than he used to be at avoiding hits.
