Well, no he isn't a good skater. Alot of kids at that age aren't the best at something but they can fly. So they may have weak edges or like your son weak acceleration. If that doesn't improve his game will start to decline around peewee and bantam when the game is more about passing and less about individuals skating the puck up.

And you have to remember that the players in the NHL that have slower acceleration are still EXCEPTIONAL skaters. Even some of the grinders (chris neil) lead there teams in scoring at some point in their career. The worst hockey player in the NHL is still an incredible player, minus biznasty.
