I've felt it's been pretty much the only weakness in his game up until now, and although it might just be Columbus' awful team defense - it looked much improved tonight.
I realize (even though I'm an engineering student) that stats aren't necessarily a good reflection of actual play, but I've been amazed when I've looked at the team metrics these last few days. They basically all show that Hagelin has been our best ES forward, and it's almost not even close.
