To be honest, he could use two more years in Europe. IMO, AHL won't do him any good.
Depends on these factors: has he learned to defend better, become more physical/tolerant to physical play, gotten his skating/balance in order/improved and what the roster situation in Detroit/Grand Rapids is. If he's considered "a shoe in selection for Euro Hockey Tour tournaments", then he's got nothing more to learn in Europe.
